    In looking for leaders at any level I think the skill sets that include the following are all important:
    Intelligence; Emotional Intelligence: Social/ political skills and Resilience. The most important however (to me) is resilience. The ability to get back up and stand in front of where you dropped off when times are tough.
    Too many times when the going has been hard do I see and hear excuses and inappropriate behaviour to deal with the situation. It is very difficult to deal with failure or clumsiness or mistakes that are PR nightmares. However leaders are paid to lead, to deal with difficult situations and should face up to the responsibility to deal with it and get back into position quickly creating calm and direction for their staff and customers.
