Here are three common beliefs that kill leadership dead.
- Believing “Because I said so” is a valid move. Overvaluing the title leads to resentment, resistance, and, at best, grudging compliance.
- Believing “It’s just business.” There is never an excuse for judgment or disrespect. Win-win works better every time.
- Believing “My value is in what I know and get done.” Nope. Our value is in creating an environment where others can create sustainable and valuable results together.
In your corner,
PS: The good news is that we can resuscitate our leadership by believing in people’s potential, in the profits of win-win, and in our ability to coach to the goals.
