Many organizations and communities have a technological debt, and they also have a leadership debt. When you join a new place, you are presented with an implicit and undefined set of assumptions on how to lead. I guess it is an amalgamation of the ghosts of the past and present leaders, with their good and bad habits amplified by the general organizational culture. So, it is safe to assume that there is no single answer to the question of what ‘good’ leadership is in a place you find yourself. Any answer you come up with is a good one as long as you feel that your approach suits you and helps others around you develop their potential. You probably already have a sense of what you appreciate about the leaders, supervisors, and managers you met on your path so far and what you want to avoid at any cost. Let's unpack how to find out what leader you want to become.
