Leaders Win When…

What should a leader consider a win? I’ve contemplated this quite a bit lately. You’ve probably seen me write articles about what success truly means, what a leader’s responsibility is, and more.

All of these are related to leadership wins. Leadership wins are when a leader has something good happen and they were a part of it.

We all need to consider what we consider a win.

You may think a win will look different leader to leader but wins don’t vary too far from one leader to another. Wins are typically the same regardless of the leader and their organization. It’s the way we define or explain the win that differs.
