How Leaders Suffer Needlessly

Leaders suffer needlessly and create even more workplace drama when they do the following:

1. Think they can’t speak their truth.

2. Think the reason for the problem is circumstances.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

3. Think they are responsible for making someone happy.

4. Think avoiding the difficult conversation is keeping the peace.

5. Think they can use flattery to get cooperation.

6. Think things will get better if they wait.

7. Think there is a miracle guru who can fix everything.

The common element that makes all leaders suffer is their thinking. Thoughts become words; words become actions; actions become habits; habits become character and character is destiny. James Allen, author of the classic book, As a Man Thinketh said it best: Suffering is always the effect of wrong thinking in some direction.
