We already know many of the stereotypical characteristics of great business leaders. Many of them have become engrained in our culture such as steely determination, fearlessness, aggression and being thick-skinned. Most people don’t think of ‘detachment’ or ‘reflection’ as major features of effective leadership. Here, Mike Gaffney discusses these skills and offers leadership advice for those who want to be leaders and how to get others to buy into your vision.

"The vast majority of people in management, bar military people that sign up to it, land in management roles because of their expertise in the area they work in. There is no evidence that they are predisposed to becoming an effective manager." http://www.leapleadership.ie/nobody-told-me-i-was-going-to-be-a-manager/ Mike Gaffney explains why evaluating employees' capabilities is crucial before appointing them to management roles.

"Executive coaching programmes can benefit business leaders of all kinds whether you run a small, medium or large company. An executive coach can offer a business owner or senior manager an objective view of their performance as team leaders as well as offering fresh perspectives on their vision for the business and where it is going."
John Raftery explains how an executive coaching programme can offer a business owner or senior manager an objective view of their performance as leaders.

"For a lot of people I come across the big frustration is they don’t spend enough time meeting their customers, finding out what they want and developing new products and services. In order to grow the business, that’s where they need to focus their attention and spend their time."
Part 1 of John Raftery's leadership training blog discusses the danger of business leaders micromanaging instead of leading their businesses.
