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.
