Leading through all climates


Yes I agree leaders should be available in times of crisis and be open and honest about all events whether good or bad, it’s the only way to keep people feeling reassured that you as a leader are real, human and mindful of their concerns. I enjoyed your mentor’s quote “talk without being offensive, listen without being defensive, and always, always leave even your adversary with their dignity. If you don’t, they will spend the rest of their lives, working to make you miserable.” but i’m not sure true leaders can or should be selective about what elements they are open and honest about which is how i have interpreted the following statement ‘In other words, step over mess, and not in it. Take the shots that matter, but not every shot’. Thank you for sharing.
