Practical Pointers
“Having a calling” doesn’t mean that you’re going to save the world; it means that you find yourself in a certain situation at a certain time - and you showed up and did what had to be done.
Leadership is effective when a leader demonstrates empathy by showing up, participating, and above all listening. That will encourage your employees to follow where you lead them more than simply issuing orders from above.
Although leaders like being seen as the experts who know everything, people will look to you for guidance and open up to you if you are willing to be vulnerable and open up to them, too.
Great business leaders are like great coaches: they look at themselves and their opponents in order to discover the patterns. If you’re not sure where something is going, zoom out, notice the patterns, and that will help you figure out the most appropriate steps to take and what steps to avoid.
