A Daily Dispatch from the Front Lines of Leadership.


Hold Yourself Accountable First

The best leaders are unbelievably honest with themselves before they are honest with others. In the face of conflict, team silence, poor performance, or relationship fracture, real leaders focus on themselves before they focus on others. They know they play a major role in whatever is happening. 

Great leadership requires this honesty. Ask yourself: What did I do? How did I contribute? What should I do differently? Holding others accountable means you hold yourself accountable first. 

Once you explore your choices and actions, you are in the best position to examine others and find the root causes of whatever is raising concern. Leadership starts with you
