Leadership is not a way of being; it is a set of behaviors—it is kinetic.
And what are those behaviors? Here is the short list that resonates for me*.
What I ask of you (and me)? Let’s model them for our co-workers, and praise them when we see them. Let’s all lead from out seats.
* For those looking for the abbreviated version:
1. They praise.
2. They decide.
3. They take responsibility.
4. They communicate.
5. They set the example.
6. They give feedback.
7. They seek help.
8. They challenge.
