Kevin Eikenberry offers these thoughts on leadership …
When I think about leadership, I think about lots of things.
- I think about initiative. Leaders must lead by taking action. They must see things that need to be done and them make them happen.
- I think about caring. The best leaders care about those around them. And they don’t just talk about how much they care, they show it.
- I think about being willing to do the hard thing, the unpopular thing, and the right thing. Sometimes these are all one and the same, other times not. But leaders do all of them.
- I think about being influential. Leadership can’t exist without influence. And leaders can influence in countless ways (whether influencing what they want or not!)
