Dichotomy of Leadership in AT – 486

Are you too extreme?

There is always a balance or dichotomy of leadership.  You can be too aggressive or not aggressive enough.

In Leadership you can be a micro-manager or not hands on enough.

You can be disciplined and follow all the rules, but not have room for flexibility or changes.

A leader must also be a follower.

Each point they discuss more in the book.

John and I cover what we are learning and applying so far through this month of leadership in AT series.
