The speed of the leader determines the rate of the pack. Being a great boss is more than just speed however. How do I know this? I've been a great boss. I've also been a bad boss and I recognize the difference.
There are four attributes that you'll find strong leaders and great boss's embrace.
1, Preparation. Even if it's a blank sheet of paper with talking points written in Sharpie, they have vision output that includes a goal and prepared to get there.
2. Caring. They have the heart of a servant. They will invest in people even when at the times people won't invest in themselves. They understand that everyone has a different dream. They are enablers of dreams.
3. Faith. They believe they can. Their capacity to succeed is equal to the size of their belief it can be accomplished. Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.
4. Grit. They find themselves behind at times. The scenery doesn't change and they are literally living in the dust of those out in front. They learn to embrace the taste of dirt. It tastes like a challenge and they have the grit and perseverance to outwit, outplay, and outlast.
