I slipped up this week. On Monday I told several people I would have something out to them by Tuesday. This was Wednesday morning. Someone else owed me the last piece I needed so I could do my part. It might come in any minute. Or maybe not. But naively thinking I would have it, I had made a commitment.
Leadership is about people. It’s about creating an environment where each person’s individual abilities contribute to the good of the whole. It’s sharing a vision that motivates everyone to work on the tasks that really matter the most. It’s building on trust, truth, and transparency. Leadership is not about having all the answers or controlling everything. It’s helping people reach their fullest potential so that together we can achieve a shared purpose that none of us can achieve alone.
This is the kind of leadership that enLumen Leadership Services exists to foster. We’re here to help you become this kind of leader and your organization become one that thrives under this kind of leadership.
