I recently posted 20 Top Leadership Tips…In Tweet Length. It remains a popular post, but I kept wishing I had made it longer, because the thoughts keep coming.

As I would think of one, I added it to an Evernote file. It resulted in a dozen more. These are more observations than they are tips. Read the list and see which of these you’ve observed in leadership.

Here are 12 random leadership observations:

Many times a leader knows the right thing to do, but we need someone to confirm it for us

The hardest decisions a leader makes almost always involve people.

The little things are often bigger deals and cause more problems in an organization than the big things.

Enthusiasm in a leader is contagious.

The greater the challenger the greater the need for a healthy team.

When a leader says, “I don’t know”, it welcomes the input of others on a team.

Communication is often the missing element in many organizational problems.

People have a hard time letting go of a first impression.

You can learn something even from the people you with whom you don’t agree.

What you don’t know CAN hurt you.

People never tire of hearing “thank you”.

Change is always disruptive to someone. People have to change to bring change.

Do you have any leadership observations you’d care to share?
