I’ve been fretting about the role of lead of leaders. I have a good rubric for understanding and evaluating front line leaders, but lead of leaders is a very different gig that requires a different set of leadership muscles. Briefly and incompletely, they need to be better at:
- Delegating work
- Decomposing vision into strategy
- Executing that strategy
- Building of new leaders
