What a great leader looks like (and how to be one)

When someone says, “She’s a great leader,” here’s what they really mean:

  • She knows where her organization is going and communicates that relentlessly.
  • She knows how to orient team members to success and hold them accountable.
  • She communicates tasks specifically, with timelines and measurements.
  • She roots for her team to succeed; she believes that they can do it.
  • She listens.
  • She tells the truth, even when it’s an uncomfortable truth.
  • Everyone on her team is looking at the same numbers.

Being “a leader” isn’t a thing.

It’s an aggregation of many things done extremely well.

Each of these things can be learned and improved. You can do it.
