Fellow the Leader

The goal of this blog is to bring out the great leader in you at your Friday night dinner table. Please print and share
mgt100This week's horse race has distracted many of us from horrendous and scary events in Jerusalem.

But wherever you look, there is this common thread:
wildly different visions of leadership.

First question for your table: What is great leadership?

How about answering rom a Jewish perspective?

Maybe I should just leave it there.

But I'll make it a little easier for you.

Let's make this a multiple-choice quiz: Which of the following traits would you guess the Torah teaches as vital to great leadership?

1. Honesty.
2. Compassion.
3. Self-discipline.
4. Vision.
5. Communication skills.
6. Decisiveness.
7. Teamwork.
8. Creativity.
9. Piety.
10. Commitment.
11. Intelligence.
12. Wealth.

After you've made your list, put them in order from most to least important.

After that, ask everyone at your table today's 2nd question: Would you rather be a good leader or a great follower?

Shabbat Shalom
