Bosses everywhere are asking employees to speak up and make tough decisions. It’s likely, however, that you know the bigger issue: How do you stick out your neck when it seems no one has your back?
Shock the system by changing the subject: Instead of tolerating conversations about wimpy employees – change the question: How do we better equip?
We need more leaders like Dan. After leading a meeting that delivered a million dollar break through, he said, “Several times there was uncertainty regarding permission to discuss heated topics.” That’s when he modeled courage – and skill: providing the safety for others to tell the truth.
Courage without skill is folly.
