Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.”
Don’t rush to judgment. You’ll always be inundated with opinions and perspectives and must make decisions based on the needs of the many.
Understand the perspectives of others, what matters to them personally and professionally and how you can support and serve them.
A leader also exists to remove legitimate barriers to success. To stay at the pulse of what matters to a group of people and convey that sentiment to those who can influence change.
Ensure people feel heard. Be their advocate.
If people feel you are transparent and they know their voice matters, they’ll give their loyal best.
We all come to the table with varying experiences and perspectives. They all matter, and everyone needs to be part of the positive change.
