#leadershiptruth – Sometimes, leadership simply sucks.

Posted October 17, 2017 in Latest News & Insights

Sometimes, leadership simply sucks. At one stage of my career, I found myself leading a team that was miserable. Too many changes, too much uncertainty, too many months on a losing streak. In-fighting, politicking … you name it. And every day I would go home and my husband would say ‘you look like you’ve been beat up with a baseball bat’. When your team is in crisis, as the leader, you will become the lightning rod for everything that is wrong in the world. It’s at these times that you need to practice self-care. Surround yourself with people who have YOUR back and can help you get ready to bring your best self to work day after day. Whether that’s in a book club, a running group, a parenting forum, or some other peer group, find support and confidence in your tribe when life on the work front is tough.
