I like Mark Cuban

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?
