In today’s podcast, the team talks about when its right to be wrong, and more importantly when to admit it. We talk about leadership from the perspective of how things change over time when bold promises get made, and how to adjust when the thing you promised no longer serves your brand or organization.
When you start a business, ministry, marriage, or new job you are probably filled to the brim with excitement and naive promises. You tend to speak in absolutes and while it's not always a bad thing because passion attracts people, IF you’re going to lead a growing company, one thing we can promise you is that there will be times you need to unmake some of those promises. That’s why we say it can be right to be wrong.
This podcast concept is something we learned from leadership guru, Craig Groschel. His podcast motto is “when the leader gets better, everyone gets better.”
One of the biggest concepts we focused on was the fact that you tend to criticize most what you understand the least. This is actually a great marker for where you might be most vulnerable in business. Take a minute to evaluate what you are most critical of in other companies or leaders. Dissect why? You are most vulnerable here because you lack content and understanding behind the why of their leadership or company’s direction. When you lack understanding you lack compassion and when you lack compassion you limit your growth.
