The week of remembrance is upon us. And it is worth revisiting some of the timeless thoughts that guided leaders who had to make decisions they knew would cost lives in service of a greater purpose.
Dwight D. Eisenhower put on a masterclass of leadership from the time he took over allied command to the end of the war – and beyond.
As a leader, you must commit to action.
But only after you’ve created an environment for abrasion in the service of a better answer.
Firm opinions, held loosely.
You must be ready to accept responsibility for your mistakes, and the mistakes of those you’ve chosen to lead different parts of your organization.
You must set the pace.
You must set the tone.
You must give responsibility and drive accountability.
You must reflect often.
You must course correct.
Does your leadership look like this?
