Leadership Promises - Reading Between the Lines

"When the country is in chaos, everybody has a plan to fix it - But it takes a leader of real understanding to straighten things out."  Proverbs 28:2 (The Message).

Leadership Promises - Reading Between the Lines.
Leadership intuition is often the factor that separates the greatest leaders from the merely good ones. Some people are born with great leadership intuition. Others have to work hard to develop and hone it. But both ways it is a combination of natural ability and learned skills. The best way to describe this informed intuition is an ability to discern intangible factors, understand them, and work with them to accomplish leadership goals.

Successful leaders see every situation in terms of available resources: money, raw materials, technology, and people. They can sense people's hopes, fears, and concerns. And they can step back from the moment and see not only where they and their people have gone, but also where they are heading. It's as if they can smell change in the wind.

Leadership is more art than science. The principles of leadership are constant, but the application changes with every leader and every situation. That's why it requires intuition. Without it, you can get blindsided, and that's one of the worst things that can happen to a leader.
