Here’s a warning:
Don’t Agree to Be the Senior Leader Unless…
You are ready to lead alone at times … or at least feel like you are.
You aren’t striving for popularity, knowing that every decision you make is unpopular to someone.
You can make the hard decisions, even the ones involving people or conflict.
You will try to see all sides of an issue.
You are comfortable with change and thinking outside the box.
You are okay when others receiving credit, even for something you initiated.
You can delegate leadership … and truly empower others, believing things are better when other people help make decisions.
You don’t let criticism derail you for long but stay committed to the task before you.
You can think beyond today and help others join you by casting an engaging vision.
You highly value people and their contributions.
Senior leaders…share yours.
