Leadership in Context: What Does Healthy Look Like?
Often in leadership, we are depending on sheer force to get something done rather than the edge of the blade being sharp. I remember one time, watching someone cut down a tree. I joked that he was trying to burn the tree down. His saw blade was so dull that you could literally smell the little tree burning. He spent a lot of time trying to cut down a small tree with a dull blade. There is a life lesson there. Healthy is being sharp.
