I'm looking for some input in what you think it takes to be a good Recruiting Manager.  What would you want to see or have seen out of a manager that was really positive...or negative.

Most successful people have strong egos.  My take is not exactly leave it at the door just have your ego in order.  When the ego is in order one knows they are good, there is nothing to prove individually so the focus becomes the success of the team or the business.  People who have their ego in order can roll with the punches, lead without having to be in the spotlight and feel they are successful if the success of the whole is achieved.
@Rebecca ... You make a good point ... Wall Street folks are on another Ego Cloud  ....  Perhaps to Sandra's point we walk a fine line with the Killer Sales guys ego mentality and confidence ...  ( I still don't mind having one or 2 of those guys/girls  in my camp with their ego's checked at the door :) perhaps an ongoing task in order to manage these players ...
Lead by example is great, but that is a feed for performance..As a manager there are other aspects too that one needs to take care of which most importantly affect an individual's and team's performance as a whole. An excellent Manager Has to be able to control the team beahviour, crop the the team politics, add to their knowledge pool (be it market, industry or their personal learning curve) be the buddy one needs & at times lash the whip to bring the BEST out of an individual and as a team..
