In a new book on fixing the U.S. health care system, my good friend Dr. David Lawrence discusses the need for leadership and discusses the attributes of some great leaders. I was particularly struck by his comments about the very strong leadership capabilities of one of our most admired presidents; Abraham Lincoln. Specifically, Lawrence focuses on the way Lincoln put his cabinet together and how he interacted with that group as well as with Congress, the soldiers in the war and his constituents.

Here are six characteristics of Lincoln, as described by Dr. Lawrence, which are the foundation of his incredibly strong leadership capabilities.

Have you seen the movie, Lincoln? I like the traits, be able to stand alone (being an individualist) and to be a student of things (an active learner).

I recommend that you read Scott Holleran's (a friend of mine) review of the movie, Lincoln.
