Leadership and the family
I’ve discovered that being with family can bring out some of the best and worst of my leadership. Here’s a couple of notes from my journal:
In the absence of leadership I step up to lead. It can be something as simple as making breakfast, but if I don’t feel like anyone is taking control I step in. Sometimes I think I’m just too impatient.
In the presence of poor leadership or a leader that I don’t respect, I check out, am defiant, refuse to follow, have a bad attitude.
I’m ashamed to admit the second one since one of the marks of a great leader is that they are also a good follower.
What situations challenge your leadership the most?
