  4. The Delicate Balance Between Likeability and Friendship

Leadership requires balance.  The leader is the one with ultimate responsibility, but is not in total control.  In fact, if you think you can control your employees with a command and control style, you’re going to find that just doesn’t work with today’s employees.  

On the other hand, a leader can’t be passive or too hands off.  People want standards, guidance and well.. leadership. 

In this series of posts we’ll explore some of the more delicate balances a leader has to manage.  It’s only in a few circumstances that extreme styles are required.  Most of what we do every day in business requires a balancing act.  I hope you enjoy these topics!  If you have other leadership balancing topics, please email them to me at [email protected].
