his my running list of salient points on leadership. Not meant to be exhaustive, but a starting point.

  1. Leadership is required when the path is not clear
  2. Leader is a title granted by followers, not by org charts. It is all about influence.
  3. Leadership is about trust

  6. Leaders are not responsible for all of the answers, only all of the decisions.

  8. Leaders provide clarity, resources, alignment, and inspiration
  9. Leaders give away power, not try to retain it.
  10. Leaders have humility, empathy, courage, and are deeply curious.
