Leadership is tricky business. 

Sometimes we find ourselves believing things that just ain't so.

Like what? Like the following lies we sometimes tell ourselves:

  • "If I ignore the problem, maybe it will go away."
  • "I'm sure I can change Bill (or Betty or Bertie)."
  • "If I just work harder, that'll fix it."
  • "It's best not to be known by, or to know well, others on the team."
  • "Keeping things just like they are is the safest course."
  • "If I show too much appreciation, folks will slip into neutral."
  • "Maybe another rule/policy is needed."
Truth telling is a powerful ingredient. Not telling ourselves lies is equally so.
