Lonely as Leaders

Being a leader can be lonely. Though we usually have people all around us, we often find that we have no one to confide in.  It is hard or impossible to rely on friends, family, clients, and employees for understanding and ideas. It seems that people don’t get what we do our they have a biased interest in the thoughts we think and the decisions we make.

We can get the insight and support we need nonetheless. We can join or launch a group of like-minded leaders who act as competent sounding boards for each other. We can hire a business coach. And we can support ourselves by taking breaks, exercising, and debriefing our days in a journal or journal app.

In your corner,
