Are you a visionary or a worker bee? A good leader has to be both — and inspire others to be both as well.
Today’s tip comes from the newly released book “Startup Weekend: How to Take a Company from Concept to Creation in 54 Hours.” While successful leaders may state that an achievement was a team effort, that is not always the case. Good leaders successfully articulate visions into actionable and digestible plans while ensuring forward progress. When customer feedback or other conditions indicate changing course, leaders pivot. Leaders work alongside teammates, maximizing each person’s unique contributions and minimizing drama. Good leaders effortlessly inspire the best work in themselves and those around them with their contagious energy.
