Many leaders fail at leadership, not because of lack of skill, intelligence, or some other ability, but because of lack of building true relationships.
Here are four lies that leaders tell themselves about their relationships with team members, colleagues, and other close to them, and why they fail in their leadership journey.
1. We say we have relationship, but we walk alone in our leadership journey. When we fall we have no one to help us up. We should heed Proverbs 27:17.
2. We say we have done nothing wrong to others, but wonder why some people don’t get along with us, trust us, nor feel comfortable discussing problems with us.
3. We say we know others, but probably don’t even know the names of the spouses of some of our team members.
4. We say we care for our employees, but our actions say otherwise. We don’t approve that last minute personal time off request from a team member to attend a child’s school function.
