Ortberg on leadership

I was reading some articles on leadership last night and thought I would post the most helpful insight:

"One of the things I believe deeply is this: Leaders ought to be the most self aware people in the room.

I'm talking about the kind of self awareness that makes you comfortable in your own skin. You know who you are and who your aren't. You lean into and lead out of your strengths. You have words for your brokenness, and while you may wish you had none, you know you do and you know what they are. And you know that other people know. You wouldn't have it any other way." - Nancy Ortberg
