High caliber leaders create separation
Leadership is both science and art. It is the combination of IQ, EQ, and the charisma needed to influence others. Leaders who understand the academic and practical components of leadership separate their organization from the pack.
The hot air balloon race is a great analogy for a leader’s growth. Leaders who understand who they are as leaders can create separation between their organization and the competition. As a leader grows in their awareness of their leadership style, and how to influence people, they turn up the heat. The cognizance of their style and the understanding of other methods allows them to be intentional within varied situations.
