Out of everything that I’ve studied in self-improvement, one of the things that is probably the most contradictory as far as information goes is leadership. There’ve been so many books written on leadership it’s unbelievable. Many of them are quite contradictory to each other as well.
You can study one great business person in leadership and find out that they were loving, warm, and treated everyone with respect. They had amazing success. Everybody loves them. Then you study another person and they were a complete tyrant. Is there a blueprint for the quintessential leader?
I’ll give you a hint, it requires embodying a specific set of characteristics and learning how to first be a good follower.
