Leadership is a challenging job... wherever it takes place, in the workplace, in the home or in the community. Some things you have heard or read are true and some are myth - my experiences have taught me that much. Such as... "Push, push, push and go, go, go" - this is advice that is not uncommon in the work place. After all, it is a competitive world. However, what is the value of patience, of pausing to reflect on a strategy, a move or a decision? As a leader, asking such questions can be very important.
