The Art of Navigation

One key leadership skill, commonly overlooked, is that of ‘Navigation’.  It is a rare skill but one vital to the success of any team.

The ‘Pilot’ is crucial to any ship as it enters/leaves port -the area of most danger, the area where wisdom and knowledge are needed, so that the dangers can be safely passed without mishap.

Who are the people that you know that are able to navigate the dangerous waters?  Who are the people that can help you see a way through the situations/difficulties that you face?  These types of leaders are indispensable, yet rare, they rarely can navigate for themselves, but for others they are worth their weight in gold.  Look out for them and keep them close.
