Are you a good planner? Are you able to put together a plan which leaves you thinking “what a masterpiece!”

Malcolm Gladwell has said it takes 10,000 hours to reach an expert level at something. As a Project Manager, I spent almost 15 years creating and updating plans. Does that make me an expert at planning?

Truthfully, I think what it made me an expert in is knowing leadership is not about the plans. Leadership is the ability to respond to whatever happens in a moment of time.

Planning isn’t a bad thing. However, your leadership will be
defined by your responses and not your plans.

“A leader’s ability to face and respond to what happens will trump all the best plans they could devise.”

You’ve got this.
