[FLR] 5 Parenting Skills That Make You a Better Leader

Feb 24, 2017 | The “Lead Like a Great Parent” Edition


Happy Friday,


Parenting & leadership have much in common.


The characteristics of a great parent are similar to the characteristics of being a great leader. A parent is a developer of people; a leader is a developer of people.


When you learn how to lead better, you are learning how to parent better & vice versa. As a developer of people, nobody gets it perfect. There are no perfect parents nor perfect leaders – just great ones.
