The Essence of Leadership (a response)

Pascal Finette did An interesting blog the other day on “The Essence of Leadership”. It got me thinking about the subject and what I think is the core of the matter:

  1. Lead themselves first, they accept responsibility for their own growth and progress.
  2. Understand that learning is a process for life.
  3. Connections matter, and that genuine communication empowers everyone when it shows respect for other people and viewpoints.
  4. Legacy matters, how we act today sets the stage for the future.
  5. Empowering others is a prime directive for success

To some degree this is about the difference between management and leadership, that’s better left for another post.
