In my opinion…
Leadership is at its best when:
People follow willingly, not under coercion or force.
People can keep up, but are still being stretched.
People feel valued, while being challenged to continually improve.
People are assigned to their specific passion, but readily do what needs to be done.
People have a clearly defined vision, but have freedom to invent and dream along the way.
People have real responsibility and authority, but don’t feel dumped on or abandoned.
People take time to celebrate, but aren’t allowed to sit still for long.
