According to Howard Wilner, who is an experienced business development professional from Sudbury, MA, playing to your strengths (not your weaknesses), practicing resilience, and having humility are some of the main traits of successful leaders. Another great quality they have is the ability to take risks. They have the confidence to act & take risks rather than holding back no matter the circumstances.

While training thousands of potential leaders throughout his career, Howard Wilner of Sudbury, MA has come across many that often compare themselves to others. This, he believes, kills creativity. He says, "I know it is hard to not do it, but stop comparing yourself to others as it'll stall your creative potential as well as your ability to be in the flow." One of the things that he often tells young leaders to do whenever they find themselves in the act of comparison is to list all the things that are going well in their leadership role. Wilner also emphasizes the importance of demonstrating strength as a leader with grace and kindness; and offering support instead of criticism.
