Is the Sword of Damocles Hanging Over Your Head!? | Dale Carnegie Blog | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

You can’t become a great leader by avoiding risk.  Damocles would agree.

 

To be a leader is to act, and to act is to take risks. Think about it. Is it possible to separate leading from risk-taking? A leader puts it on the line repeatedly, continually making the decisions that determine how the organization will succeed by addressing issues, solving problems, adapting and innovating.  They explain, teach, persuade, and get it done.  All of those involve action and action involves risks.

John Michel's curator insight, July 18, 2013 8:38 AM

When the senior leaders of an organization have poorly functioning moral compasses this presents an extremely serious threat to its existence. In the public sector a department won’t shut down, yet it is citizens and taxpayers who pay the price in the end.

ThinDifference's curator insight, July 17, 2013 7:50 AM

Kindness needs to be embraced as a leadership principle. It is not about being weak. It is about strength in empathy and in civility. Millennial leaders get this, and we need to learn from them.
