Leadership chat 4

Conversation number 4 in #100leadershipchats was with a software developer turned people person, who also is the pastor of a church and the captain of a band!

 

We talked about:

 

- how good leadership can be like gardening but great leadership involves extreme accountability

 

- how good leaders do ongoing intense personal work - often learning an in-depth skill

 

- how vulnerability is easy to pay lip service to but is hard to square with the pressure of a leader to "lead"

 

- how the pressure to come up with the ideas and get it right is a significant block to helping teams work

 

- the importance of community so you're not doing this lonely work alone.

 

Loving these chats and the way they're allowing me to connect with an incredible bunch of people!
