5 Star Leadership

The following exhibit identifies the important core values and attributes of a five star leader that I used to develop a 12-day leadership development program.

Based on research and experience, there are 4 key sub-attributes associated with each attribute.  Together, they provided the outline of a 12-day leadership program that I developed and delivered for several years.  The 12-day program was delivered over a 9 month period.  One of the Vice-Presidents at the Canadian government’s agency for overseeing the appointments of executives referred participants to this program year-after-year.

The sub-attributes associated with the above five attributes are as follows:

  1. Effective persons
