Good leaders are hard to come by. GREAT leaders, nearly impossible.

The best leaders I know purposefully lift up and inflate those around them. The lesser ones serve as DE-flaters. 

What is it that those DE-flaters do to let the air out of the rest of us?

  • View and speak from the negative perspective, ad nauseam.
  • Insist on time-eating processes, protocols, procedures.
  • Tolerate, or even incentivize, bad behavior.
  • Diminish, devalue, nit-pick, and demean.
  • Focus more on the past than the future.
  • Talk, A LOT.
Anti-example can be an excellent teacher... (for those who are paying attention).
