5 Leadership Traits from Jack Welch

From our experience, the first essential trait of leadership is positive energy — the capacity to go-go-go with healthy vigor and an upbeat attitude through good times and bad.
The second is the ability to energize others, releasing their positive energy, to take any hill.
The third trait is edge — the ability to make tough calls, to say yes or no, not maybe.
The fourth trait is the talent to execute — very simply, get things done.
Fifth and finally, leaders have passion. They care deeply. They sweat; they believe.
