Lesson #1: Don’t be an Ass!

Avoid the Bullride!

#NoBullRides
To put it politely, I was an ass. To make things worse, I was oblivious to that fact. I’m sure the same is true for many leaders. My wakeup call, fortunately for me, happened when I was a very young, up-and-coming leader – manager really. I didn’t have any leadership competency to speak of at that point my career. I refer to this experience in my life as my bull ride. It occurred in the early 1990s when I was an unapologetic, self-important 26-year old … fill-in-the blank with whatever unbecoming word that comes to mind. Yep, my mirror. Not proud.

How this Tool can Help:

The key is in understanding yourself, and more importantly what your people think of you as their leader.  This would have saved me a ton of collateral damage.  I’m not gonna lie, sometimes feedback is a little hard to choke down – like a bad tequila.  It does require a level of badass to suck it up and find the opportunities for yourself.  The tool you will be introduced to is a custom 360 survey, it’s totally confidential and like a supercharger when it comes to helping you get the feedback you need to stay off of the Bull!  So, Cowboy or Cowgirl up and invest in yourself.  It’s very powerful and cost about as much as a decent date night. It won’t break the bank, but it can help prevent you from breaking up your team.  Follow the link to MDR Coaching & Consulting, Inc. for the mother-load of toolboxes. #MDRSameSame #ButDifferent #360Fuel
