Being a leader isn’t easy. There are tensions with every decision a leader makes. I was thinking recently about some of those tensions.
Here are 10 tensions of every leader:
Displaying confidence without being arrogant.
Being inclusive without simply accommodating.
Making bold decisions while building collaboration.
Showing strength while displaying compassion.
Controlling energy towards a vision but allowing individuals to chart their path.
Funding dreams and curtailing needless expenses.
Celebrating victory while not resting on current success.
Honoring history while pushing towards the future.
Creating structure but allowing the freedom to create.
Learning from other leaders but being who you were uniquely wired to be.
