Understand This… Leaders must take responsibility.
You are out front. You make the decisions. The buck stops with you. If it’s good, it’s your fault. If it’s bad, it’s your fault whether you did it or not. You have to answer for the good and the bad as well as make sure that things keep going well or get fixed. Leaders DON’T BLAME. Leaders lead. Leaders learn and leaders get help when they need it. Leaders own mistakes and operate in humility. It’s not necessarily a bad thing to say you’ve been wrong. It’s a bad thing to deflect and let others take the negative hits. Own it, stand up in it, fix it and make the people following you understand that you are all about doing the right thing. That’s what real leaders do and I can see you doing those kinds of things.
