Leadership Minute: Simplify

simplify

Colin Powell said, “Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.” This is one of the most admirable qualities I see in leaders. Like you, I’ve seen my share of leaders who can take the complex and build on it. But it’s refreshing when a leader can simplify the complex, build a consensus around a solution, and put in place a plan of action along with the right people to solve it. One of the best and most underused tools in your leadership toolbox is simplicity. Don’t be afraid to use it.
