The leadership/human competency “Directedness” encompasses many traits
Direct? To lead those who look up to us with sincerity, integrity, honesty and genuity.
Being direct as a leader requires a strong moral compass, and the courage to conduct oneself with integrity regardless of the potential personal cost.
Directness does not translate to rudeness, rather to the character and competence to speak the truth to all, without fear of consequences or favor in selecting those we choose to be honest with.
Direct leaders blend tactfulness with candidness to serve the best interests of their charges and all.
