I had a great conversation last week with a good friend of mine.
We were talking about some difficult leadership issues I faced, and I was exploring how to tread carefully. I was peeling back multiple layers of complexity…and felt that I needed to use more diplomacy. I was asking him for help with how to avoid “rocking the boat”.
His response made me laugh…and then I realized how wise his insight really was. He said “Chris, you’ll never find that leadership skill written in a book or discussed at a conference. There is no leader who ever advises us to dance around an issue. Just go deal with it. ”
Wow. That was pure leadership wisdom. Thanks Jimmy!
Thanks for listening.
