Business and charity leadership is being a gardener

Some leaders emulate wartime generals, but people get killed in wars. Some copy sporting captains but sports is about winning and losing. So much of business is about all stakeholders winning, especially when it is the business of charity. The best example for a leader to follow is the gardener. A gardener plants out the garden and then waters, weeds, tends, trains, replants, sometimes prunes. Then ultimately harvests. The seeds of which are replanted and the compost used to refertilise. These are duties of a good business executive leader. There may be times for the other forms of leadership. Times of crisis management etc. But the norm is the gardener.
