The Leadership Gap provides the antidote for leading on autopilot. Daskal provides the insight into our behaviors and beliefs that can if not managed properly can derail even the most talented and successful leaders. Confronting and avoiding our leadership gaps is the key to attaining long-term leadership success.

You are not a leader only because of your knowledge or skill. You also have others to bring along with you, so they grow and blossom to support the goals of the organization. Be sure you don’t take for granted what it takes to grow great employees. If necessary, create your own development plan so you will become a superior grower. By the way, farmers who grow seasonal crops don’t take it easy in the autumn and winter. What do you do after the harvest to prepare for the next round?

If I apply this to teaching, it would focus on a question: "Which teacher inspired me? How did they make me feel?" For me, those teachers stood out for some particular reason that was singular to them and me. On the other hand, they may not have been each student's cup of tea.

10 hard skills to learn that will last a lifetime 

10 hard skills to learn that will last a lifetime  | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
To survive growing up on a remote cattle ranch in the middle of Wyoming, I needed to be scrappy, gritty, and tenacious. If I wasn’t keeping an eye out for rattle snakes, I was avoiding horned bulls from charging my horse as I tried to cut them from a herd of cows.

 I learned many important life lessons on that ranch, not the least is that it takes hard work, sweat, and mental toughness to get to the top and stay there. I took many of those lessons with me into the FBI as an undercover and counterintelligence agent for 24 years.

This is the essence of what it means to improve your relationships, because when you improve the relationship with yourself you also improve your relationships with others.
