What skills or traits do leaders or managers need in a Learning Organization?

Leaders Skills in Learning Organizations

Effective leaders need many skills to be successful.
However, success starts with followers - the people who actually do the work of the organization. To me, this suggests "empathy" is one of the core/fundamental skills necessary to lead any organization - not just a learning one.

Skills needed for Leaders of Learning Organizations

As suggested by Eric Beebe, empathy is one very important trait of good leaders. A good leader should not appear to be leading, he or she should appear to be expecting the best from his people. When we expect the best, which is achievable as per us from the people, people try to be that. And excellence develops.
Excellence in leadership is to get ordinary people to do extraordinary as a team. People must be stretched to bring their best but it should be human and not too analytical to be seen as a scheme. People do not like to be part of a scheme.
