“Good leaders do three things, writes Baldoni. One, they take care of their people. Two, they take care of themselves. And three, they prepare for the future. What pulls them all together is grace. Grace is the “catalyst for the greater good.” Grace is critical to creating a connection with others that leads to positive forward movement. “When it comes to dealing with change and crisis, grace becomes evident in how we treat one another.””
“Grit produces hope, not the other way around. Every difficult step you take strengthens hope. But hope shrivels when you quit. Helen Keller said, “Nothing can be done without hope and confidence,” but she has it backwards. Action energises hope and confidence. Hope wilts apart from action.”
“Smart leaders get first-hand intelligence rather than relying on filtered information. Less effective leaders rush to judgment and make decisions based upon arrogance and assumptions.”
