Do you worry that you may be unfairly blamed?

May 6, 2011

Whenever we act with an eye toward personal and political consequences rather than mission and responsibilities, we are not leading. It’s natural to imagine personal and political fallout and being unfairly blamed, but don’t let it hold undue sway.

Focus on achieving the mission and your responsibilities, and you and your organization will get more accomplished and build stronger, more trusting relationships. More often than not, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the personal and political consequences.

Reach your next peak

We help leaders expand the change they want to see in their teams, organizations, and the wider world.
