Six Dynamics of Team Leadership

I am currently reading an interesting book titled When Teams Work Best by Frank LaFasto and Carl Larson.  In chapter four they introduce what they call the "Six Dimensions of Team Leadership" which I think provides an excellent approach to leadership.  The six dynamics are:
  1. Focus on the goal
  2. Ensure a collaborative environment
  3. Build Confidence
  4. Demonstrate sufficient technical know-how
  5. Set Priorities
  6. Manage performance
I view the six dimensions as a brilliant summation of what it takes to be a successful leader.  Focus, goals, collaboration, confidence, capability, priorities, performance; they are all there.  Are there other approaches to  leadership that you have seen work well?
