    These concepts require a deep understanding of the self-awareness continuum. I found with many variations of Jung's work it is difficult to teach as folks tend not to want to become self-aware of their style, type or MB designation. I agree that this is one of the top 5 needed understandings of leadership.

    Given this phenomena, i believe the golden rule is more applicable. Treating others the way they wish to be treated is usually not in the best interest of the goals of leadership or ultimately for the individual seeking to advance in their own style of leadership. A leader who is creating space for another leader in their growth has the responsibility to two goals, the new leader and the goals. I believe the golden rule recognizes this separation of need vs growth.

    @John Whitehead.Thanks for sharing your great experience.The scenario of working relationship in Saudi Arabia is going to change from employee basis relationship to sharing information.The traditional hierarchical relationship which is based on -What can I do for you to help yo do your job? will change to
    a relationship based on- who in the organization depends on me and for what information? leadership model ,then, will change from being people-oriented to being interest- oriented.The organization in Saudi Arabia is an organization of specialists from different perspectives and backgrounds connected together with a "common interest".The leadership challenge facing this sort of an information- based organization will be in promoting people to top- management levels rather than developing rewards and recognition only .On the other hand,Young Sauidis will not be satisfied to be dictated by any leadership model accepted by expatriates or dictated by order and control or forced to play on the conservatives playground on which recognition and rewards are decided based on their position on a specialist ladder rather than a real corporate ladder.For any leader embracing change in Saudi Arabia ,he must be ready for a dislocation in the workplace that may force them to alter everything including their double-ladders.

    A timely reminder that if you don't understand the foundational principle of treating others how you want to be treated it is very hard to build any further leadership capability. I think this will help me with a client I am currently working with and coaching - thank you

    Thanks for this insightful post.

    It's worth mentioning that there are countless leadership traits that can be listed, but of all, I presume that excellent character ranks on the top. Without right behavior, what's the use of authority, credentials, expertise or intellect?

    @John Whitehead ...leaders have the privilege of guiding others and hopefully they will inspire followers. You ate correct, it's more about the people who follow when it comes to the subject of training leaders. I think this is not given sufficient emphasis when helping leaders.

    It's a good idea from Tom peters that can energize your career strategy.Everyone should stick around the idea of branding themselves. Branding doesn't mean presenting your past "core skills", but instead positioning the output of your current "core interests" through personal and professional profile on beBee.

    @Alan Culler.The payoff is worth the effort to say "Thank you".The word has the impact to turn difficult situations or people to something different.If you want to shape people perceptions before they react ,say the word in a meaningful way.One of the strongest instincts of true leaders is to say words that have a big impact on employees.

    What a great story you shared @Alan Culler about gratitude. You led up to the premise of your article quite nicely. There is definitely a difference between empathy and sympathy. To be able to walk a mile in another's shoes is an attribute, indeed. Great leaders can possess empathy while not allowing it to get in the way of their better judgment- 2 great qualities in a leader. How nice that you did end up sharing the recipe with your sisters ;-) I'm sure they were grateful!

    I love this post, @Alan Culler, because I never thought of gratitude in that relation to leadership and you are exactly right. It's those people who recognize that no one is truly "self made", that every person brings some value to our lives, and that we have something to learn from every encounter, who are true leaders. Thank you so much for this post, it's just what I needed to read today.

    You have illuminated an area of leadership that skills dont help. Perseverance, self-awareness and courage are the character traits we need to pull back and clear our minds. The era of Bobby Fisher and the chess playing between Russia and America spawned the movie. The coach during a dramatic scene wiped all the pieces from the board and asked Mr. Fisher to see the board.

    Sometimes we do get into the rabbit hole and forget why we are there or maybe get to far away from the team. Resetting once a week to know why we do what we do is a great habit.

    Steven Covey calls this sharpening the saw. His simple story of two men sawing away at a tree when a woodsman approaches and watches them for a few hours is a metaphor for this concept. The woodsman asks, Why dont you stop and sharpen the saw? No time is the response.

    When your answer is you are to busy to most anything, you might need to sharpen the saw. Thanks for the reminder @John Whitehead.

    Trust is a very broad topic. Also it involves context when discussing. I may trust my daughter but do i trust the boy that is taking her out for an evening? This would imply that trust can be designed/measured by the elements of risk that get introduced to the equation.

    In leadership our responsibility to create goals that have elements of trust surrounding outcomes is the true equation. A secondary responsibility is to influence those within the organization that the goals are worthy of their trust. I need not have their trust in me as an influencer. Should they be looking for me to be that trustworthy influencer then we have a different problem. A leader is not a whole organization, just one element. The organization can be successful if all support or trust the goals. If you can't believe in me, can you believe in the goal itself? A leader should not have to stand and meet the challenges of individual belief systems and the subsequent grading system. This would be exhausting. A leader who feels that they need to meet this challenge will then have to live and die by that standard.

    Pure trust is reserved for those we chose to be intimate with in our lives. All other trust is balanced by the risk i am taking.

    Go read my comment over there! Let's all apologize for the us versus them mentality.

    And most importantly the lovely woman, Jenny Simon, prominently featured in @Aaron Skogen's post is just starting her career and only has 225 connections. Let's boost her career and get her some targeted people to call!!!!!

    And I see why it was.. Here's my comment from LI

    I was in Sales and Sales Management for durned close to 30 years. I don't think anyone ever apologised for being rude to me, Aaron.

    I fact, I remember a sales meeting where reps complained about it. I suggested we play a game. Note: This was years ago, well before HR and Legal Compliance were pretty much the same department.

    I turned my back to the reps and they chose someone. They did not say who... no names. I just asked if the person was male or female.

    I then proceeded to insult the living Hell out of that person. Everything was fair game. I won't repeat any of it for fear of banishment from the platform.

    Let's just say it wasn't at all PC.

    The room was roaring with laughter when I turned around. Tears were rolling down most faces. Even, the object of my diatribe was in stitches.

    I asked her, "Why ae you laughing? I doubt anyone has ever blasted you that badly before."

    "It was hysterical. Besides, you didn't even know it was me. You were just blasting some random woman. It could have been anybody. It wasn't really directed at me."

    "Exactly."
