Lesson #8: Commit to Balance

The problem presented in this lesson is simple: if you believe leadership happens from behind a desk or by the pressing of buttons on a digital device — without any thought about collaborating with your team, listening to their viewpoints, recognizing their achievements, coaching them to greater heights, tackling diversity issues head-on, and continuously being inclusive — you will find yourself staring up at the proverbial skies from a deep hole. It is not the sort of balance a caring leader exudes.
