In 100 Words: Lead Patiently


Superior performance is rarely achieved through relentless force and pushing. Great leaders learn to strike a balance between motivational challenging and patience

Leaders CHALLENGE by:

  • Expecting great results and holding people accountable.
  • Practicing continuous learning themselves followed by wise application of concepts.
  • Maintaining key disciplines such as meeting rhythms and priority-setting.
  • Driving resource alignment around strategic priorities.

Leaders demonstrate PATIENCE by:

  • Knowing change does not happen overnight.
  • Spending years developing an effective, healthy leadership team.
  • Understanding there is a limit to how much a person can take on and absorb (stretch) at any point in time.
  • Repeating themselves…without showing frustration.

“Patience is the companion of wisdom.” –Saint Augustine
