Every single decision in life is a risk-versus-reward balancing act, says Anthony Guerra. If we choose certain actions – or inactions – based on fear, that equilibrium no longer exists.
There’s a fine line between guiding someone in the direction they want to go, and forcing them to go to the destination you’ve chosen, says Anthony Guerra. And a leader must be able to make that distinction.
When we keep people at arm’s length, it’s easy to find things we don’t like. But when we’re brave enough to get closer, we often find quite the opposite, says Anthony Guerra.
There are two basic rules all leaders should follow, says Anthony Guerra: give your staff the flexibility and freedom to get the job done, and don’t lead from behind.
Reading books is a great way to learn about leadership, but an even better way is to study firsthand how a quality organization – and a struggling organization – are run, says Anthony Guerra.
