Leaders Skills start with “us”

Since pre-historic times, humans were designed to work together; that’s what we do. We can be really good at looking after others when conditions are right for it. Looking out for each other becomes a sense of ‘us’, and trust is forged from that. Indeed, the root word of trust is us.

Unfortunately, most corporate CEO’s fail miserably at creating the proper circle of safety. They all say that they care, right? But their actions often prove otherwise. For all their credentials, they lack the most crucial trait, in leaders skills.

Often, a CEO puts the circle of safety around senior executives, and no one else. You see this when the board gives their CEO a raise, at the same time that they go about laying off thousands of employees, except for the top level executives who are protected in the circle of safety.

An extraordinary leader will extend the circle of safety to the outer edges of the company, even out to loyal customers. They are willing to do without, so that their people are safe.
