What Is Your Job As A Leader?

man being a leader for his staff

“Your job as a leader is to be right at the end of team meetings, not the beginning.”

That quote is from the book Art’s Principles by Arthur Gensler. Mr. Gensler is the founder of the world’s largest and most successful architectural firm, and a renowned leadership expert.

He goes on to say, “It is your job to flush out the facts, all the opinions, and in the end make good decisions. The good decision is what’s important, not whether it was your idea from the beginning.”

In other words, if the leader goes into a team meeting knowing what the outcome will be, they are not only running a dictatorship, they are not taking advantage of the talents and ideas of their team members who are in the thick of things every day.

Don’t enter into any decision with the end in mind. Your job as a leader is to hear everyone out with an open mind, then decide. You just may be surprised!
