The word “Incidental” means to accompany something without being a major part of it, but what does that mean for leadership?
Incidentals are never planned when leading. At times, the unexpected happens.
We find incidentals in various areas surrounding leadership. People and plans are directly connected to every organization, but not always a major part of goal planning. However, they are essential to assist the ability and opportunity to move along more smoothly.
Incidentals may not always occur when we want, nor the way we want, but they can provide a wealth of benefit in leadership when understood and used correctly.
