Our lives are ripe with opportunities to take offense to the actions of others. Even more so, I believe, when you take on the mantle of leadership.
Opportunities For Offense As Leaders
Leading gives us many chances to become bitter. It’s true, especially when you begin to examine leadership and the intricacies involved with leading.
You’ll come across those who:
Want to take your position as a leader
Talk behind your back
Pass your over for promotion
Find opportunities to usurp your position
Try to turn others against you
If you’ve been a situation like these, you know there’s the whisper that’s telling you to hold onto the hurt you felt. It’s your right after all, right?
And that’s how offenses begin to take hold. That’s how offenses begin to hinder your ability to lead.
