The razor edge of authority
Authority is likened to the razor edge of a surgeons scalpel and the two razor edges of a warriors sword.
The scalpel- Knowing when to use the scalpel by mentoring others and surgically removing the cancers that eat away at a persons life.
The two edged sword – Knowing when to strategically attack when the threat of an enemy approaches.
The inexperienced leader will often use a scalpel in the battle field and the two edged sword trying to remove a cancer on the operating bed.
We are forever at the beck & call of mastering the sharpness of leadership swapping between scalpel & sword accordingly.
The outcome of such authority is evident – Heal & protect those we lead.
