“Leadership…That Tool That Lies Between ‘Juggling’ & ‘Magic’”

Juggling” is a verb defined by the Merriam dictionary as: “To keep several objects in motion in the air at the same time by repeatedly throwing and catching them”

Merriam defines “Magic” as a noun, specifically: “A power that allows people to do impossible things by saying special words or performing special actions”

Leadership” is that topic that, alphabetically, finds itself between these two, and often is confused with these two. As evidenced by these questions and replies often asked of and heard from leaders: “What are you doing? I’m just keeping balls in the air” or; “How did we make that happen? Magic”
