Today I had a thought about capturing the essence of leadership in a short poem.
Here is what I came up with. I wonder what else you would add to it?
But involve others
Focus on results
But don’t forget about people
Take the decisions
Even when it’s tough
Acknowledge that success
Is a team effort
And don’t blame others
Accept there will be setbacks
But keep moving forward
Build a strong network
Because it can be a lonely existence
Give your best
And help others do their best
Remember there is no finish line
Just a new set of challenges ahead
