I’ve written about Mark Cuban before (be sure to visit that link for some good examples of what a maverick he really is) — but reading his weblog clinches it for me. He embodies some of the ideal characteristics of a leader:
- Transparency. You don’t have to guess what he’s thinking; he’ll tell you.
- Candor. He doesn’t pull any punches.
- Decisiveness. He has conviction — and the wherewithal to follow through on it — that others will count on.
- A sense of humor. He doesn’t take himself too seriously, and he likes poking fun.
Most of all, what you get from reading about him is a sense that he likes who he is, what he does, and the positive effect he can have on other people.
And how can you not like a guy who writes this post?
