Your personal characteristics are part of what will define your effectiveness as a leader. Together, your characteristics, knowledge, style and values provide the framework and structure for you as a leader and manager. Characteristics are those things that are inherent to who you are that effect how you respond to leadership opportunities. People look for characteristics in their leaders that give them the confidence that they will be led by an ethical, principled person.
