Leadership Is Like Dating?

Leadership Is Like Dating?

Remember when you first started dating someone? You wanted to learn all about them; you cared what they said and you were very nice to them because you were “courting” them.

Leadership is a lot like that…

We want our leaders to get to know us and be curious about what makes us tick. We don’t necessarily mean that we want them to share personal details but we do want to feel like we are cared about and that our leaders have some common space with us.

I have asked this question, “What do you look for in a leader?” and about 80% of the people consistently answer “people skills.” Yes, they answer that leadership skills are important, communication, expertise and all that BUT overwhlemingly, we just want to have a leader that is good with people and makes us feel like a part of the team. Are you that kind of a leader?
