The 4 Pillars Of Stable Leadership by Mike Myatt at Forbes on 1 July 2013.
The desirability of stability within a leader. The author sees the four stability traits being:
- Strong conviction and principles
- continuous development
- caring for those that you lead
- allowing people to make mistakes
I agree with the four pillars, yet I have a hard time reconciling the concept of “stability” in the face of “passion”, another desirable trait in leaders. Can you have passionate, stable leaders or must stability equal “boring”?
