Guilty

I've committed every one of the leadership mistakes in the list below:

  • Talking too much and listening too little
  • Trying to "fix" the weaknesses of others rather than leveraging their strengths
  • Deploying too many initiatives at one time
  • Believing flattery
  • Noticing only the bad stuff
  • Attempting to resolve conflict through email
  • Allowing uncertainty to prevent progress
As I abandoned each, slowly but surely, our results got increasingly better.

Still got work to do, but knowing what doesn't work is a good start.
