Interesting response to my question of, “What is your day in day out leadership style?”
Okay, I had to ask as a follow-up question, knowing his statement was symbolic, “What do you mean?”
His further explanation caused me to think.
He said, “One bucket is to start fires and the other is to put fires out.”
Maybe that is what business owners do more than anything else.

Possibly that is a concept for any of us wanting to perceive, believe and achieve that which we know is within us.
Two bucket leadership.
