Being a leader isn’t easy. There are tensions with every decision a leader makes. I was thinking recently about some of those tensions.
1 - Displaying confidence without being arrogant.
2 - Being inclusive without simply accommodating.
3 - Making bold decisions while building collaboration.
4 - Showing strength while displaying compassion.
5 - Controlling energy towards a vision but allowing individuals to chart their path.
6 - Funding dreams and curtailing needless expenses.
7 - Celebrating victory while not resting on current success.
8 - Honoring history while pushing towards the future.
9 - Creating structure but allowing the freedom to create.
10 - Learning from other leaders but being who you were uniquely wired to be.
