The key element keeping the traits and habits of leadership in balance is discipline. A good example regarding traits is having the discipline to keep in check your passion vs. your commitment vs. your patience. Often when describing a project, other participants are not immediately up to your level of understanding, and resulting conversations can becomes argumentative. Discipline regarding habits is an even easier concept. At the extreme, it is practicing things that are to our benefit, but we do not like. More frequently, however, it is simply taking time to integrate something beneficial into our routine, perhaps regularly checking in with your team members; as well as avoiding trivialities that are disruptive, like checking emails the instant they arrive. In the end, it is up to you to have the discipline to continuously balance and improve your leadership style.
