We could talk about leadership for day's, but I just wanted to hit on how a leader talks to you.
A true leader will help work through the question-what should we be doing?, then ask for your thoughts on how it can be achieved. He will work through it with you to come up with the optimal plan. You will walk away from the conversation feeling excited about the task given to you, and willing to give everything you have to accomplish the goal. We have had good and bad leaders in our careers, just remember the ones that inspired you to be the best you can be, and pay it forward!
