“The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man’s foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.”
– Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–1895)
English biologist and educator
Are you holding yourself accountable as a leader (with a title or not)?
As leaders, we enjoy the responsibility of helping people develop in a way that encourages them to hold themselves accountable for their attitudes, their work, and their results.
We need to be as disciplined, resourceful, and resilient in our efforts as we ask our people to be in theirs.
Relentless leadership is embracing the fact that the need for solid & ongoing reinforcement never ends and uncomfortable conversations are a necessity. This is how we create something special.
Managers: How much development attention are you giving to your team? (20% of your week would be a full day of nothing but development time… 40% would be two full days, beginning to end)
Professionals: Don’t have a coaching manager? Consider finding a development partner.
