“The challenge of leadership is to
be strong, but not rude;
be kind, but not weak;
be bold, but not bully;
be thoughtful, but not lazy;
be humble, but not timid;
be proud, but not arrogant;
have humour, but without folly.”
Quotes don’t always stop me in my tracks.
But this one did.
It seems to me that reflecting on these words and discussing them with people around you in a meaningful way would be very useful – especially if there was honest and open vulnerability and a willingness to see where we needed to improve.
Then again, role modelling these words would be even better.
And therein, I believe, lies the real challenge.
Where can you take these words to heart this week?
