The best GE leaders I’ve been around are people who do two things all the time. No. 1, they do what they say they are going to do. Making commitments, and delivering on them, gives these leaders the personal “brand” and credibility that encourages others to support their next idea. No. 2, these leaders are who they say they are. Honest, genuine, transparent, and not trying to be something, or someone, they are not.
