Parent, Partner, Pal. Which is best for your team?

Your answer came immediately. All three have a place.

Your team leading goal is probably to partner. In order to partner with your team you added of a dose of parent and a sprinkle of pal.

Teams want coaches not bosses. Coaches who respectfully ask, thoughtfully listen, calmly facilitate, and strongly encourage toward building a team that is, in fact,  a mini-community.

Teams want comfortable leaders.  Leaders comfortable with emotions, strong push-back, and robust conversations, who can stay the course toward the vision.

Teams want grounded visionaries. Visionaries who understand why the team exists (mission) and who help them boldly see and vividly describe the team’s awesomely successful future (vision).
