•Energy. Welch says individuals with energy love to “go, go, go.” Everyone knows these types, the ones with boundless energy, who get up every day ready to attack the job at hand. High-energy people move at 95-miles-per-hour in a 55-mile-an-hour world.
•Energisers know how to spark others to perform. They outline a vision and get people to carry it out. Energizers know how to get people excited about a cause or crusade. They are selfless in giving others the credit when things go right, but quick to accept responsibility when things go awry.
•Edge. Those with edge are competitive types. They know how to make the really difficult decisions, never allowing the degree of difficulty to stand in their way. These are leaders who know how to make what Peter Drucker calls “the life and death” decisions: hiring, firing and promoting.
•Execute. This is one of the real keys to the entire 4e Model. The first three “e’s” are essential, but without measurable results, the other “e’s” are of little use to an organization. People who execute know that activity and productivity are not the same thing. The best leaders know how to execute. They know how to convert energy and edge into action and results.
