I’ve had the privilege of knowing a lot of leaders in my life. Some have been outstanding; others abysmal. The nature of leadership is something that has fascinated me for as long as I can remember, so I paid close attention to all of them. In this category of posts, “Lefkowitz’s Lessons for Leaders”, I’m going to try to distill what I’ve learned from them into some best practices (oops, sorry to lapse into consultant-speak) that anyone who seeks a position of leadership — or has one forced upon them — can use to avoid making the same mistakes I’ve seen made over and over again.
Ready? Then here we go, with the first thread in this topic — “Where Leaders Fail”.
