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

Jan 29, 2016 – The “Lead Like a Great Parent” Edition

Happy Friday,
Parenting and 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 and vice versa. As a developer of people, nobody gets it perfect. There are no perfect parents nor perfect leaders – just great ones.
