Leadership Competency Balance

Everyone is a leader, because a leader influences people, situations, and outcomes.  The question we need to ask ourselves is whether we are leading well. American culture tends to define a great leader as one who has vision and demonstrates boldness and decisiveness.

Boldness and decisiveness

Although these competencies can be leveraged for significant impact, if they are not tempered with equal amounts of wisdom and understanding, their effectiveness may be diminished. Effective leaders understand and apply their competencies in a balance way that supports moving people toward the goal. Where might you be out of balance? Are you paralyzed in making a decision that moves you forward, because you want to please everyone? Does your boldness alienate others? Does your decisiveness without sensitivity leave others in your dust?
