The Razor’s Edge of Leadership

The Razor’s Edge of Leadership

Russ Hardesty, PhD



One aspect of the Razor’s edge that makes a phenomenal leader is Clarity.  Clarity operates on several levels, giving definition to the tribe of the leader.  It creates the opportunity for a collective unconscious for the tribe to operate as a single living organism with its many complex subsystems to function seamlessly.  The various members of the organism or organization each find their purpose and meaning in their various and unique contributions.


Clarity allows the intuition and creativity of the members of the organization to be aware of the many opportunities available for the taking in abundance.  Abundance isn’t “things” but an experience for the organization or individual.  Jesus spoke of this in the Sermon on the Mount, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”[1]

Confusion, mixed messages, or neurotic behaviors create an environment of distrust and a fear driven culture.  Clarity allows the heart and soul of an organization, trust and respect, to prosper and proliferate which becomes the filter for greater clarity and abundance.

[1] Matthew 7:7-8

    I like the way scripture talks about the tribe, actually its talking about the church which is a tribe. We all have a part to play in the organization. As leaders we need to recognize that no individual is greater than another. We are in this together, sink or swim. Of course, the direction is up to the leader or the person at the helm. “If one part hurts, every other part is involved in the hurt, and in the healing. If one part flourishes, every other part enters into the exuberance.” 1 Cor. 12:26, Msg.
