Leadership (in 50 words or less)

I always find it challenging and fruitful to try and describe a tough topic in concise ways. It forces you to prioritize your thoughts, weed out the noise, and reinforce the signal. Here is my first exercise of the year.

What does a leader need to do?

Motivate: Create energy, encourage creativity, communicate with clarity
Steer:        Make things happen, break down barriers, Set-adjust-reinforce shared objectives
Decide:     Understand viable alternatives, judge risks and opportunities objectively
Coach:      Facilitate teamwork, listen, speak, care, set the bar, enforce the bar, and raise the bar for everyone
Be trustworthy
