One Leadership Tip: Day 16: Dealing with Adversity

Day 16: Dealing with Adversity

Rittenhouse is innocent, which seems to be a surprise to many and a no-brainer to the rest.
A little smidge of faith potentially put back into our justice system after that one, however, it seems that there is always something else to chip away at our will that follows it up in the next day’s news.
Like a man driving his SUV through a Christmas parade in Waukesha slaughtering 5 and seriously injuring 40 more as of today.
We will see if this gets the attention in the world as much as a kid protecting his life against 3 others attacking him did.
Which brings me to the ONE LEADERSHIP TIP today:
As a leader. it is up to you to treat the team and individuals fairly. 
To confront any issues upfront that needs to be addressed and not swept under the rug.  To handle each situation uniquely but also justly.
We’ve talked in the past that trust takes much time to create and build up but seconds to break.
How you show up on a daily basis as a leader and how you handle adversity and confrontation and difficult situations more so than just about anything will be a key factors in the long-term success of your team or organization.
I’m not saying that each situation needs to be handled the same way everytime, however, the fairness and swiftness, and certainty with which you do so will hold all the weight in the world with you people.
If you don’t, and your people don’t feel they can trust you or that you don’t have their backs they will leave you or pull back until the next opportunity comes up.
That’s all I’ve got for today Big Shoots!
