Go with your highest point of clarity. Find clarity as you go, not before you go.
Abraham chose a course for his life, not an organization. The outcomes of major life choices are always uncertain. Use imperfect clarity to take an imperfect step toward your future.
If outcomes are certain, your life-decision is too small.
Holding people accountable changes the game to realism. Accountability is the “bridle and bit” of our personal character that keeps us structured, organized, and proactive waiting for the next challenge.
People around you are looking for that moment when you cut the apron strings and allow them to perform to expectations without you,the leader, involved every step of the way. Step aside and let people do what they are eagerly waiting to do…perform to the best of their abilities.
“Being treated with respect was more important to employees than recognition and appreciation, communicating an inspiring vision, providing useful feedback — or even opportunities for learning, growth, and development.” Christine Porath
Respect is a feeling, but showing respect is a behavior.
