Al Gini, Extension 720’s resident philosopher, joins Justin to discuss the 10 virtues of outstanding leadership. Al and Justin talk about the conditions that make a quality leader, the definition of “leadership,” the importance of character and stewardship, why honesty is a trait of an effective leader, if whistleblowers make good leaders, the difference between a manager and a leader, if you have to be nice to be a leader and why timing and deep selflessness are the most important traits of a great leader.
