Susan Taylor's insight:

We are living in a world of profound complexity and unprecedented change.  A world where things seem to turn on a dime.  So what does it really take to be an amazing leader today?  Shane Snow shares with us some of the patterns he has observed from the best leaders in his life.

 

  • Great leaders change their minds and do so often; they have the courage to admit when they are wrong.
  • Great leaders absorb shock; they are "the first to face danger, the first to battle; and shield the group from harm".
  • Great leaders overcommunicate; they confide in their followers, trusting them with all the information.
  • Great leaders think before answering; they do not feel the pressure to have instant answers to everything.
  • Great leaders search for the right path; not the easy path.
  • Great leaders have sacred time for themselves; they know that self-improvement and balance is imperative.
  • Great leaders are in it for others; they are motivated by the desire to help others.

 

If you are trying to become a better leader in your work and life, Shane Snow sums it up beautifully:  "Strive to be the kind of leader you would follow yourself."
