Thoughts on Leadership

The most underrated leadership skill is management. A bold vision goes nowhere without setting clear expectations, involving people in decisions, and giving actionable feedback. It’s hard to be a great leader without being a good manager.

So, what is the main difference between types of leaders?

Insecure leaders seek to be dominant, and stoke fear. Confident leaders seek to be respected, and earn trust. Courageous leaders seek to be challenged, and earn admiration.
