The CEO was describing a person – a leader in his organization. “He’s got pixie dust,” said the CEO.
I inquired, “What does that mean?” Thinking I knew, I still wanted to hear this chief executive verbalize it. And he did.
“He just handles things more remarkably than anybody else on my team. It’s almost as if he’s clairvoyant.”
That’s pixie dust power and effective leaders have it. Poor leaders don’t. And it makes all the difference in the world in their work…and in their careers.
