Robert & Robert, great post

Being a caring leader is about caring for the people & issues together not people or issues (this or that approach). Avoiding talking to the person or soft-pedaling is a ‘this or that approach’, one can still be firm and flexible by talking about the issue in time in a particular way where the person absorbs/embraces the point/issue and moves forward or moves out.

Being firm & flexible at the same time is key, just being firm without being flexible will only make the ecosystem brittle, and will look solid till cracks begin to appear.
