I think THE BIGGEST MISTAKE A LEADER CAN MAKE… and YOU?
What an interesting variety of answers...wow, love it, love it - i think my level of awareness grew by 100 centimeters...LOL. See what it does to yours.
Earlier I was watching a very empowering video and you know as a coach my mind is just fascinated with the variety of points of view and definitions of words or phrases and how people see,understand or define the same word or circumstance in a completely different way.
So here are some of the answers of some great Leaders in no particular order.
NR.1 Being Certain.
As we know things are rapidly and constantly changing, things are unpredictable. We can't act as if we know. When you think you know u don't pay any attention anymore, why bother, you know it already. A Leader should learn to exploit the Power in uncertainty. (Love this one.)
NR.2 Betraying Trust.
Absolutely, I mean who will give it her or his best to someone they don't trust.
NR.3 Not living up to their values.
NR.4 Being so enamored with their Vision that they loose all capacity for Self doubt.
True, what are the voices you are disenfranchising.
NR.5 Personal arrogance.
Creates social distance and power distance - which is demotivating and could lead to big mistakes.
NR.6 Acting to fast before thinking trough the issue.
Take a step back seek advice and approach with a new VISION OF where you are going
NR.7 It's all about the Leader.
It has to be about something larger than yourself…
NR.8 Not being authentic and consistent.
Be the same nice human being at all times.
NR.9 Not be Self reflective.
Great Leaders are constantly reviewing their behavior, thinking about developing themselves and how their behavior effects other people.
My Opinion is:
NR.10 Being judgemental.
When people feel judged we loose all power to influence them. And as Leaders we have to send people in a New direction towards a New Vision.As a Leader you must influence the thoughts feelings and ACTIONS of those you Lead. And that requires a lot of understanding.
Please share your points of view below and if you are a Leader take a few minutes and reflect. Are you making any of this mistakes?
Have a very Successful Year.
