Great Leaders Create Clarity

Great leaders have the ability to simplify and get everyone focused on a shared goal or vision. Years ago I was working with a company that was struggling. The CEO called a meeting of his top leadership team to discuss how to get the company back on track. The CEO’s speech to the team was a tirade of dissatisfaction, frustration, and anger, which he ended by shouting “Every one of you has to go back and get your people on board! That is the most important thing I expect from you, to get everyone on board!”
