The two extremes of leadership I see that drive me crazy are the controlling leader and the hands off leader.
Have you noticed these extremes of leadership?
Most leaders tend to lean towards one or the other extreme. I’ve even seen some leaders who live in one of the two extremes, sometimes alternating between the two. They never learn the healthy balance between the two.
Effective leadership requires a little of each extreme. It requires a careful selection of elements of control and elements of release. Good leaders are willing to wrestle through the difficulties and continually practice to achieve the right amount of each.
