The #1 Essential Leadership Skill

What’s a top essential leadership skill every leader should master?

Pause.

Yep.

It used to be that the smartest people in the room asked great questions. Now, people think they need to have all the answers to be a great leader.

But in today’s fast-paced world with all our change, innovation etc., can we truly have all the answers?

As leaders, embracing the art of pausing can work wonders.

Pause before responding, pause before sharing your opinion.

It’s not about losing expertise; it’s about empowering others and avoiding burnout by thinking you need to have all the answers by yourself immediately.

Try it. Before responding: Take 3 mindful breaths, twist your ring 3 times, or count to 3. See the magic unfold!
