The environment in which you work greatly affects your attitude, productivity, and ability to focus. Great leaders know this. And in order to be the most effective, great leaders seek out the best leadership tools. They organize their workspace so that these tools are in easy reach.
But this post may not be what you thought. It’s not about gadgets or software. Not all tools are literal and physical. The best leadership tools are behavioral and available to all. They are attitudes that shape how we lead. They are intentional strategies that make a difference in one’s leadership. They are tools that can be carried with you anywhere.
These common leadership tools, metaphors really, can be found on any great leader’s desk.
