Qualities of Creative Leaders/Lovers
Another list for you list-lovers out there. Here's a great one from David Ogilvy, highly revered in the advertising world, of qualities he looks for in creative leaders :
High standards of personal ethics. Big people, without pettiness. Guts under pressure, resilience in defeat. Brilliant brains – not safe plodders. A capacity for hard work and midnight oil. Charisma – charm and persuasiveness. A streak of unorthodoxy – creative innovators. The courage to make tough decisions. Inspiring enthusiasts – with trust and gusto. A sense of humor.
I was thinking this list might be good information in a dating site profile. You know the question about "what are you looking for in a mate"? Do you think anyone would dare respond to a set of criteria like this? Just wondering.
