Leadership Lesson: Your Character Under Attack
This week we will finish out the mini leadership series on character.
In the past few, we learned that a strong character is needed for strong leadership.
That telling the truth is the quickest way to improve it.
But what happens when your character is questioned or even attacked?
Here’s the tough truth.
As a leader, it will.
There’s no way around it.
Even though you are a good person, a strong leader with strong character, there will be times it’s called into question.
Leadership is not easy.
It requires you..
To go against the grain.
To stand up for what’s right and not what’s easy or popular.
To stay the course in the face of criticism and adversity.
To defend people in private.
When this happens, human nature can be combative.
Human nature can resist.
As a result, you & your character will be attacked.
Why do I share this?
Not to scare you.
Rather to empower you.
This way you can expect it and overcome it.
The best way?
Take a deep breath, shrug it off, and keep developing your character so you can lead your team forward.
