Simply Lead

Leadership and Simplicity

We tend to mystify leadership but it comes down to continuous practice of just a few things.
Leadership is about:
  • Visioning
  • Aligning
  • Empowering
  • Guiding
  • Evaluating
All in order to take others along a journey that yields a common and desired end.
Vision is a preferred and compelling future
Alignment is casting that vision, setting check points or goals and getting buy in through accountability.
Empowering is permission and resources to get the goal accomplished
Guiding is checking in and coaching up
Simply asking what could we do better or what did we learn?
