On Quiet Leadership

A calm mind, its thoughts well-organised and its plans well-considered is the most necessary ingredient for a quite leadership.

Two people each have a horse each and they have to get their animal to jump a fence.

The first owner stands behind the horse and uses a whip to force the horse and the horse jumps the fence.

The second owner stands in front of the fence with carrots in his hand to invite the horse over and his horse jumps over it too.

They both jumped the fence this time, but if you use the whip, sometimes the horse will kick back instead of jumping. That’s the problem.

“My approach is born of the idea that a leader should not need to rant and rave or rule with an iron fist, but rather that their power should be implicit. It should be crystal clear who is in charge, and their authority must result from respect and trust rather than fear. ”

There are no great coaches or leaders. They are only as great as the talent they seduce and lead and how much permission this talent gives them on a daily basis to deliver their ideas.
