This previous post had broken down the power and influence of leadership impact and introduced this series of posts covering where the wake from a leader’s actions can be observed and felt.
Leadership Lesson: Accountability partners keep us on task and responsible for what it is we want — and need — to achieve, further developing and sharpening our skill set.
When is enough enough for you?
This week, Arizona junior United State Senator Jeff Flake, a detractor of the President’s since early on in the presidential campaign season, gave an impassioned speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate in which he came out against and denounced the current state of U.S. politics and the President’s role in perpetuating the negativity, telling the President “ENOUGH!”
You’ve seen it in your daily interactions. Sometimes it’s powerful while at other times it isn’t. Its effects can be either long-lasting or easily forgotten. It can influence you to the point of welcoming that experience again or avoiding such encounters as much as possible in the future. You can learn from some of them or not learn anything at all.
Sometimes, it’s even nonexistent.
A Leader’s Wake –…
Are you a hypocrite?
Yes, that’s a real question that seeks an honest and self-reflective response. Whether it’s in your work or personal life, do you ask others to do things you won’t? Or, conversely, do ask others not to do something you do?
Oftentimes, we look at situations that we’re involved in, whether in life or at work, with the ultimate hope that they’ll benefit…
That question isn’t meant to be answered in terms of legal ownership or number of shares owned. The question means to ask specifically, How much of the outcomes of your organization, team, group, or mission are you invested in?

The results borne out of the work of your organization or group — how much of that…
Leadership Lesson: Leadership at any level should include the integrity to stand up against something you don’t believe in, no matter how unpopular the insight might seem and who you might have to tell.
What does it take for you to stand up to a leader or a boss who keeps making missteps?
Let’s assume, for the sake of argument, that in this case,…
The previous blog post How Long Do You Wait Before You Admit Something Isn’t Working Out? spoke about Flip Floppers, and about their right to change their minds, while making sure they don’t go about it in a reckless manner.
Specifically, the post notes, “It’s OK to change your mind. Just demonstrate why and what you learned.”
This still rings true, but as with anything else in life,…
Disrupting the balance in an environment undermines the steps one can take to evolve and improve the environment. Through disruption which is too powerful and “unhinged,” you risk not just resetting policies, but relationships.
Politics aside, leadership needs to be about assurance and reassurance. Part of those assurances is that, in addition to meeting the goal desired by and for the organization, a minimal level of stability needs to exist in…
This week, billionaire Mark Cuban formally endorsed Hillary Clinton after initially supporting Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump earlier in Trump’s campaign run.
Cuban not only endorsed Clinton, but had some strong words with regard to Trump’s leadership ability in the process.

What can seemingly be more powerful than someone’s actions?
With actions, the detail and results are known and, most often, witnessed.
With perception, the imagination of each person curious enough to think about an issue can roam wild and come up with its own interpretation of events. There is no limit to the imagination so, therefore, there’s no limit, really, to how a situation can be perceived from the outside.
“…the perception of…
