Do you hold yourself to the same standard, to the same expectation that you hold your team to?
Chances are that you don’t.
As leaders, we often give ourselves a pass, right?
We believe because we’re the founder, we’re the owner, we’re the leader, whatever it may be, that we don’t have to live up to the same expectations.
And here’s the interesting thing.
We judge ourselves, each of us, we judge ourselves based on our intentions, and yet we judge other people, based on their actual actions.
We judge ourselves on our intentions and them on their actions.
So when we see them not doing the thing they said they’re gonna do, we judge them based on that.
But when we don’t do the thing that we said we were gonna do, we don’t judge ourselves on that.
We judge ourselves on the fact that we intended to, but maybe something else came up.
So we need to learn to give team members grace.
We need to learn to also remember that they are gonna judge us based on our actions, not what we intended to do.
So we have to hold ourselves as leaders to the highest standard.
You can do this. I know you can live up to those expectations if you expect other people to.
