One important leadership skill is the ability to effectively teach, paired with a generous amount of patience. I love the following story and the powerful leadership lessons it contains for all of us.
Sometimes as leaders we get so caught up in the day to day business that we overlook the most important things. And those “things” are the people in our lives. On one of my coaching calls the other day I was talking to a successful executive that was struggling in reaching his goal of recognizing and appreciating his staff more.
