The Hypocrisy that Limits Your Ability to Lead

Part time Integrity is not really Integrity. It is hypocrisy.  If we only choose Integrity when it is easy, what are we? Answer:  Hypocrites. Continue Reading…

One Thing That Kills Trust

"It's my fault."

Who do I trust? And why do I trust them?  There are a lot of things that play a role in whom I trust.

Integrity, consistency, and reliability are just a few.  I trust people who display these attributes – most of the time.  However, even the most honest, consistent and reliable person will lose my trust if they are arrogant.

Doubt kills trust. Continue Reading…

The Pride that Limits Your Ability to Lead

Humility or arrogance? As leaders if we believe we are the most important person in any situation, we begin to limit our own ability to lead.

The Fear That Limits Your Ability to Lead

Man Watching through window blinds

Courage or Cowardice? It is the leader’s choice. There is no middle ground. Leaders are constantly confronted with choices that will expose us as a coward or a courageous Leader of Character.

  • What do we do when we are faced with uncertainty?
  • What do we do when we are faced with a situation that makes us uncomfortable?
  • What do we do when we are faced with saying what someone wants to hear versus something they need to hear?

Our choices when we face our fears define who we are as a leader. Continue Reading…

Corporate Culture Left Adrift

Battleship

84% of employees do not believe their company’s culture is widely upheld according to a study by the Aberdeen Group.  The startling thing is the numbers are only slightly better for executives who answered that same survey – 81% admitted they are not doing a good job upholding the company culture.  These are the people who are responsible for reinforcing the culture!

A ship left adrift rarely ends up in port.  That ship usually ends up on the reef. Continue Reading…
