Andy Stanley once said:
Leadership is a stewardship, it’s temporary, and you’re accountable.
The last part of this quote always catches me. Andy Stanley tells us that we’re accountable for our leadership. And it’s true.
We’ll be called out on whether or not we led the best we could. People will watch to see how we handle the power (and stress) of leadership.
There will be people looking for reasons not to follow your leadership. You will also have people who want to discredit and kill your leadership authority.
But those aren’t the ones you have to truly watch out for. You have to watch out for yourself.
Your Own Worst Enemy
It’s funny. Actually, it’s not…
We love to self-sabotage our efforts. We will do things that will hold us back or make us fail.
