The better you can pinpoint a hidden leader's strengths, the easier it will be to develop missing skills and characteristics. Think of a specific person, and then review the steps that follow. Check the behaviors you have observed in all four areas: has integrity that shows, leads through relationships, focuses on results, and is customer purposed. The more checkmarks in each level, the more developed your hidden leader's abilities.
Notice that when you evaluate integrity that shows, you are evaluating both the hidden leader's ability to show integrity and others' perception of that integrity. There are no levels of integrity per se, because there are no variations on integrity. One has integrity or not. In terms of evaluating the hidden leader, then, you are simply evaluating that leader's ability to show the integrity that already exists within the leader's personality.
