In the past, I’ve blamed myself for the failures of the people on my team OR I took too much credit for their success. This rollercoaster was unsustainable emotionally. I needed the time with other leaders, digging deep into my story, and hearing theirs, to truly understand what made me “me”. The new understanding has helped me be more vulnerable with those I’m leading, and as a result, enabled me to lead people who are different from me. I feel like my leadership has added 1-2 new dimensions.
If you deeply desire to be a better husband, father, friend, and leader the investment of time and money will be immeasurably valuable! Don’t think about it too much. Just do it.
