This is the dialectic of leadership. The doing and the being. Fred Rogers says: “It’s really easy to fall into the trap of believing that what we do is more important than what we are. Of course, it’s the opposite that’s true: What we are ultimately determines what we do!” Leaders know that who they are and the kind of person they have become will have a direct bearing on the outcome of his or her team. The being is more important than the doing.
