Leadership is Hard

Sarah Thompson, chief executive and the subject of this week’s Link, sets the standard for leaders to:

 

  • Be selfless
  • Decide what needs to be done and do it
  • Think how they can make the whole team better
  • Do a great job
  • Set outcomes and give people more and more freedom to achieve them
  • Give people clear feedback in the moment so they can pivot
  • Validate their own energy and do what they need to do quickly
  • Hire people with stamina and commitment to the team and organizational goals

 

What else do you think a leader needs to do?

Enjoy your day!
