BoldaciousLeaders

We've all followed leaders, lots of them.  Some, however, stand out as exceptional in our minds.

I like to think of those extra special kinds of leaders as boldacious (yep, I made that word up).

Here are some of the things about boldacious leaders that make them so extraordinary:

  • They help us see better futures for ourselves, both individually and collectively.
  • They invite us to come along on their journey (they don't demand compliant followership).
  • They are passionate about the journey they're on, and it's contagious.
  • They accept us just as we are, then invest in us like crazy to move us toward our best possibilities.
  • They communicate consistently and persistently about where they think we oughta go and why they think it's important to go there.
  • They genuinely care about us, and it shows.
Sign me up, Captain.  I'll gladly play on Team Boldacious.
