"There's a point in time when you need to give grace to members of your team, allowing them the freedom to fail, to make mistakes. But there's also a point in time when grace needs to give way to consequences, especially when it begins to detract from the team."
"I need to depend more on my team."
"There is a time to be silent. People will think what they're going to think and you can't always defend yourselves. Sometimes you must be silent to protect the integrity of the team."
"I need to lead from my strengths. That's why I was selected."
"Just because I communicate something, it doesn't mean that people hear it."
"There are times that you can't rely on group think and you must stand up and make the hard decision. That's why you were chosen as a leader."
"People don't tend to stay passionate over the things that I'm passionate about, unless they have it inside themselves to start with. I need to find what motivates them and stoke that fire."
It's important to remember that leaders are learners. Leaders never stop growing. This list reminded me that there is always something to work on.
