Adopted from the following great insight shared by David Rock from the book Your Brain at Work
1) Great leaders understand intuitively that they need to work hard to create a sense of safety in others. In this way, great leaders are often humble leaders, thereby reducing the status threat.
2) Great leaders provide clear expectations and talk a lot about the future, helping to increase certainty.
3) Great leaders let others take charge and make decisions, increasing autonomy.
4) Great leaders often have a strong presence, which comes from working hard to be authentic and real with other people, to create a sense of relatedness.
5) Great leaders keep their promises, taking care to be perceived as fair.
