I make no apologies.
I continue to challenge the people I lead. I expect a lot of them. I try to be fair. I’m a strong advocate for family time. I embrace the flexible workplace. But, I am always pushing people to be better. I challenge people to live up to their full potential and I’m dissatisfied with a mediocre performance.
(You can read the non-negotiables to serve on my team HERE.)
Please note, I’m not there yet, but I’m striving to be a great leader.
There is a huge difference in challenging people to live up to expectations and being a controlling leader.
Great leaders hold people to high standards.
Jesus held people to a high standard. He didn’t like half-hearted devotion. Why should we?
