The Mind Of The Leader, a book written by Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter, has foundations in serious research, numerous assessments, and interviews with those in executive positions. Hougaard and Carter have concluded that in order to be a successful leader, one needs to have three specific mental traits or qualities: mindfulness, selflessness, and compassion. This book was written to aid leaders or potential leaders in the modern workplace, as the changing landscape of modern labor has necessitated that leaders be more human and to keep their egos in check.
- You can train your mind to take on more qualities found in effective leaders.
- Studies have shown that good leaders must be selfless, compassionate, and mindful.
- Leaders must also watch their egos, because egos that are too large can negatively affect the workforce.
"The authors found that three mental qualities are essential to becoming effective leaders."
