Head + Heart Leadership is the defining skill, approach and practice of a super-leader — and it’s the primary reason teams follow them.

Teams want a leader who cares about them. A leader who connects and sees each team member for who they are and what they contribute to the organization and the world.

They also want a leader who has a vision and can show them the way. A person with strategic perspective who can explain why this path, why this vision.

Teams want their leaders to be authentic, show their humanity and understand the impact of their decisions.

Leaders don’t need to be perfect, but they do need to admit mistakes and adjust. Head + Heart leaders are tolerant of others’ mistakes and give their teams the opportunity to fail and learn.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, HEAD + HEART LEADERS LISTEN

Every team member wants to feel heard, be understood and know their input has value. And, if their input isn’t followed, they want to understand the “why” behind the choice that was made.

In other words, Head + Heart leaders walk the tightrope of caring, understanding and developing people while making tough decisions related to the goals, practical needs and desired results of the organization.

While they never lose sight of business objectives, Head + Heart leaders understand the fastest way to get there is to connect with the people who will execute those objectives.
