The Head Follows The Heart
(Part 2 in the series)
1.) Listening, courage, and vision carry over into this category as well. When we have their attention, we need to deliver quality leadership.
2.) "Duplicatable"-This is where humility also reappears. Leaders seek to build more leaders and trust their people. Managers want to hold people back.
3.) Patience-Not everyone grows at the same pace. We need to let people grow into new roles.
4.) Persistence-Leaders never give up. We adapt, improvise, overcome.
5.) Mediator-Conflict resolution is important. The vision cannot be blurred by petty disputes. If it becomes necessary to separate from the problem, we have to be ready to do so.
6.) Knowledge-We must know our subject matter. We'll waste plenty of good work if it becomes obvious we don't know what we're talking about. We must also be able to teach. We're looking at creating more leaders, not groups of followers. Remember the famous quote attributed to several authors, found just below.
"If you can't explain it to a six-year-old, you don't understand it yourself.”
