If you’re tasked with deciding how to outline your company’s strategy for the next 10 years but you’ve never made a strategic outline, chances are you should defer to the next subject-matter expert. The point is, for a decision to positively impact others, foster opportunity or any of the aforementioned characteristics, you need to be cognizant of when you’re operating within your circle of influence and when you’re pushing its boundaries. Don’t be that person who clutches to decision-making authority because it makes you feel important -- defer to the person closest to the problem.
When we think about the characteristics of a leader , we often think of leaders that are dynamic, which calls each of us to act or to follow. We could take an example, such as Hitler. He did not have the values that we should follow, but had that inspiration that could ignite a country. If we also stop to think about the leaders today in the US, we do not get the same vision of a leader that has a dynamism that is hard to resist, but rather a leader that has that ‘good to great’ quality. Often times these leaders are more quiet and reserved, embodying the vision of good leadership skills and calling each of us to action in a subtle way that can often times leave us asking why we’re buying what they’re selling.
