I ask how they were treated

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
  • Influencing
  • Decomposing vision into strategy
  • Executing that strategy
  • Building of new leaders
