Link to Part 1.
It's important as a leader to be the brain - and to be the full brain. It isn't just an intellectual pursuit, the brain is also where the emotions are and emotions are a big part of who we are.
If you are new to a leadership role you need to think about what you need to change in order to be effective in your new role.
If you have always been the heart, that is an important role - it has a big impact. But you probably want to be thinking about how you can become the brain of your organization.
If you are the foot - feet are still important - you have more changes to make and further to travel.
I probably am running out of mileage on this analogy. No more installments.
