I’m about to give you the sum total of all my learning on leadership from many decades of devoted work, research, curiousity etc
Want the secret to great leadership ?
The role of a leader is a one line job description :
Keeper of the Vision
That is it. Simple.
Nothing you do is more important. Everything else is meaningless without this.
End. Of. Story.
I will doubtless wax lyrical in future articles about reaching a vision, articulating visions etc etc.. and for now.. K.I.S.S.
Oh, and as I landed on this line, the voice of Ed Percival called out to me to say “never make a point without telling a story”, so I googled for an appropriate story and here is one as succinct as the one line job description above. From Steve Jobs, naturally.
