“We stumble over pebbles, never over mountains.”
So goes the saying. Leadership is often thought of as something few of us can do well, requiring us to be both visionary and charismatic. But as a leadership coach and consultant, and the author of four books on specific aspects of leadership (with a fifth on the way!) I know that really great leaders are people who, day after day, manage to keep their eye on the mountaintop (the vision) while rarely stumbling over the pebbles along the way. It’s been my life’s work to find out how they do that.
I’ve created The Leadership Almanac to share what I’ve learned about how good leaders lead.
If you’re interested in the ins-and-outs of leadership, in the full spectrum from how leaders create a compelling vision of the future to how they sweat the small stuff, from how they make tough decisions to how they navigate a difficult conversation, from how they inspire to what makes them perspire, from what people like Warren Bennis to people like Robert Fulghum have to say about leaders, you’ve come to the right place. I’m here as a catalyst, to share, to facilitate, to kick things off. I’ve got a lot of ideas, and I want to hear yours as well.
Please leave a comment or two. Who knows who you’ll inspire?
