To become a better leader doesn't
mean you have to incorporate all
12 habits at once. Start by focusing
on just one or two at a time.

NE of THE MoST popuLAR DilberT CoMIC
strips in the cartoon's history begins with
Dilbert's boss relaying senior leadership's
explanation for the company's low profits. In response to his boss, Dilbert asks
incredulously, "So they're saying that profits went up because of great leadership and down because
of a weak economy?" To which Dilbert's boss replies, "These
meetings will go faster if you stop putting things in context."
Great leadership is indeed a difficult thing to pin down
and understand. You know a great leader when you're working for one, but even they can have a hard time explaining
the specifics of what they do that makes their leadership
so effective. Great leadership is dynamic; it melds a variety
of unique skills into an integrated whole.
