Many thanks to those on LinkedIn who contributed your suggestions to what you think the cornerstones of leadership might be. You can read the excellent and interesting answers here.

There isn’t a any hard-and-fast rule of what the cornerstones of good leadership are and one could easily include more than four! 

The 4 cornerstones of leadership that we will look at over the next few days are described by Clay Lowe. He’s had a wealth of experience from leadership in the US Army, to now taking people on leadership development courses up Snowdon.

When I first heard these I was inspired by their simplicity in terms of remembering them but also in applying them. They are:

1. Live the Vision

2. Set Standards

3. Have Humility (!)

4. Make Decisions

We will look at each one of those briefly over the next few posts.
