Think of leadership as achieving a balance between task and relationship; and will and humility to gain a commitment versus mere compliance. At the center of this balance is the fulcrum of self-awareness which requires discipline and self reliance for personal growth and development. In the end, articulating where you’re going, how you’ll get there, and why it’s important is the mechanical part of leadership. The art is in working towards a balance to build trust and gain a voluntary commitment from those you seek to influence.
Learning to Lead boils down to focusing your time and managing how you respond to your environment. Your passion about the mission, and your attitude towards the people you lead needs to match your rhetoric.
