Leadership – in your shoes

You can’t know how it is to be in leadership until you’ve walked in the leader’s shoes.

It’s easy to pick on leaders, and as a leader, it’s easy for people to pick on you.  They cannot know what it’s like to lead until they walk in your shoes.  You cannot even tell them what it’s like – and they completely understand.  Only those that have walked in your shoes can understand what that is like.  I don’t necessarily talk about the pressures and struggles of leadership with those that haven’t walked in my shoes.  In fact, not only do they not have a context for it, you should protect them from having to deal with or think about your issues.
