I was having a conversation with a senior executive recently. My team and I just started working with his organization. He said he had checked out my work and, in particular, read several of my Gut Check for Leaders blogs. He then said, “You have so much great content that I suspect a lot of people like me aren’t even aware of it.” He then advised me to start sharing some of that older content because it is still valuable.
It was a great piece of feedback and one that I will begin to incorporate moving forward.
The first one I’m going to share is about the continuing issue I see with leaders and that is their tendency to run away from their problems. Some avoid them altogether. Others prefer to take the easy way out.
This issue is often attributed to leaders lacking courage. Based on my conversations, a lack of courage seems to be running rampant in many organizations.
