The Consequences Of Concealment

Can you think of the last time you sinned or made a mistake? You probably had a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach. You were scared someone would discover what you did or how you treated someone.

Realize All Leaders Can Fail

I think the biggest thing we can do when a leader fails is to remember that all leaders can fail. Even those you look up to the most.

When you put leadership failure into the perspective that it could easily have been you, you begin to look at the failed leader in a new light.
