This One Leadership Quality Will Make or Break You.
Leadership is not about personality; it’s about behavior—an observable set of skills and abilities. Despite differences in culture, gender, age, and other variables, leaders show similar patterns of behavior. Great leaders are not satisfied with mediocrity, traditional ways of thinking or conventionalism. Great leaders pursue – “a failure to embrace pursuit is to cede opportunity to others…failure to pursue creativity relegates to the routine and mundane.” In a word, excellent leaders pursue being excellent leaders. Failing at the art of pursuit almost guarantees that you will not succeed at becoming a great leader because what you pursue is what you value – whether that be creativity, financial success or even the “next big thing.”
