Preventing criticism

Engage people early and often. Avoid isolation. It’s difficult to criticize the plan you had a hand in making.

Choose teammates carefully. Don’t give persistent critics a seat at the table.

5 dangers of criticism
  • Losing yourself. 
  • Isolation.
  • Self-justification.
  • Bitterness.
  • Revenge.
  • Criticism, even done poorly, transforms leaders. The sting of criticism given years ago can still cling years later. Most often, criticisms humble you.

    Criticism is desirable and useful, even if it stings.

    Take criticism to a useful place by asking:

    • What do you suggest?
    • How can I be better?
    • What do you want?

    "Thank you," points criticism toward useful ends.

    Misunderstanding leadership

    Leaderships is one of the most misunderstood responsibilities in business.

    Many people confuse leadership with rank or authority.

    It’s impossible to think about risk and opportunity without a reference point. And ours is at most incomplete (if not totally wrong).

    Everything we think about risk and opportunity is shaped by our own specific situation and personal experience. So everybody has a view of risk shaped by narrow experiences but applied to the broad world.
