If you want to be perceived as someone with a strategic mindset, be tolerant of long brainstorming sessions and debate before things start simplifying.
Don’t let criticism prevent you from taking the lead, however, don’t be blind to the right suggestions. To do this, break the journey into smaller milestones, and after completing a milestone, reflect and see what could have been done better
“…A good leader does not become so based on what he says. He becomes so based on what he does. Followers or peers will watch you and make impression about your leadership ability based on your actions and not on your speeches. Any ‘saying-doing gap’ and the leader will lose credibility. Gandhi will remain as one of the best leaders in world’s history as there was no saying-doing gap.
