Ten Characteristics Of Strong Leadership Cultures

A strong leadership culture is critical to your organization’s success.

The word community can feel like a big, amorphous, and abstract concept.

But it starts with something simple: the ability of leaders to establish strong relationships and create a sense of purpose, meaning, and belonging with their colleagues, so they can collectively set the tone of accountability and inspire employees to step up, take ownership and deliver results.

Companies with solid cultures deliver three times the returns to shareholders.

What does a strong community of leaders look like?

The graph on the right breaks down the top ten characteristics of strong leadership cultures and shared aligned behaviors for each.

  1. Have clarity on the strategic direction of the organization.
  2. Create excitement about the future.
  3. Share a common aspiration to be great as leaders.
