Aggressive Patience and Consistency
As I was growing in my career, I noticed those that moved up in company hierarchy seemed to be the ones that were the most aggressive and took the most direct control over situations. I now see, the accompanying traits I did not notice were tremendous patience and consistency.
Those that kept rising and bringing others along always had these.
Although there were instances of meteoric risers who properly and quickly diagnosed and found opportunities, it was the people that exhibited patience and consistency that brought along the most doers...purposeful doers, who wanted to accomplish and improve. I now listen to aggressive doers and try to better understand the layers of who benefits from accomplishment and success.
