From the Paper:

"What all these approaches to defining leadership have in common is the trustworthiness of leaders (Douglas, Zivnuska, 2008) and their ability to be consistent in defining and fulfilling commitments. The leadership attributes of being empathetic and able to coach, clearly communicate and invite team members to internalize the vision and their role in fulfilling it, and motivate through concentrating on each team members' unique strengths to increase open collaboration across teams are all crucial leadership skills".
