I love to read. As a kid that was not the case. But one thing I learned early on about books still rings true today. “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”
In that regard, leaders are no different than books. You can’t judge them by their covers.
There is a difference in a great leader and a leader who looks great.
Do you look great or do you lead great?
Great leaders focus on integrity rather than reputation. Great leaders work on their character as much as they do their competency. Great leaders resist the urge to be all show and no go.
If you want to live up to your leadership potential, perhaps it’s time to stop worrying about the cover and start focusing on the middle of your book.
Leadership Begins at Home,
What happens when leaders are more focused on their reputation than they are their integrity?
