Leadership thought

Off to Italy this morning for a 3-day rest break, although I will be answering emails on the flight to Milan this morning.
I am also expecting heightened security at Manchester Airport.
I was discussing leadership again yesterday with a client – and the distinction between “hard” and “soft” leadership.
Hard = orders and a focus on managing systems.
Soft = conversations and a focus on leading people.
