Derek was a captain for the Yankees. and over all a good role-model. because of his old school approach: never give excuses or give less then maximum effort.

Whats similier

I don't usually give excuses and hardly give up

What was helpful

I think it was never giving less then maximum effort so he would try his hardest

Why i would follow

He gives his maximum effort and I think that's good

Does Derek have to demonstrate all the leadership traits to be effective

No he can still be a good leader but just not as good

to be a good leader you should be good at communication, humor, inspiring, and many more like that
