Great Leaders Focus Less on Strategy and More on People
“I have a strategic plan” is not a quote we remember Martin Luther King, Jr. saying at the Lincoln Memorial. Great leaders focus less on strategy and more on people. They understand how affecting the feelings of people can inspire others to climb the mountain with them. Have you ever been told that your ideas weren’t welcome and to focus on your job? That’s likely because you are a heretic (soon to be hero), who is on the way to becoming a great leader. The world needs you! In his book, Heretics to Hero: A Memoir on Modern Leadership, Cort Dial discusses, through storytelling, the leadership lessons he learned throughout a career on skyscrapers and in South American jungles.
