This is Why Leaders Shouldn’t Be Nice!

As leaders, we are not called to be nice, we are called to be kind, honest and courageous.

What Determines Your Identity?

The problem with attaching our identity to the work we do or to the company we do it for is that the day that for any reason that job is no longer there, professionals lose alongside with their income, their own sense of purpose and identity. And this is not only relevant to jobs or careers, it happens with spouses, children, religious organizations, and so on. Belonging is great, we were created to crave community, but losing our individuality and our identity in the process is unhealthy and it will leave us depleted and lost. Part of reclaiming our identity is identifying our purpose; you know, one of the many existential questions we are bound to ask ourselves at some point or another. Why am I here? For which purpose was I created? What’s my worth?

Leading with Kindness

Kindness is like a muscle, the more we exercise it, the stronger it’ll become. And as a result, we’ll become more grateful, more expectant, more intentional, and way more engaged. It’s easy to criticize others and to allow our self-righteousness to boost our ego and pat us in the back, but the truth is, nobody has it absolutely right. We all make mistakes, we all struggle, and we all have a long way to go when it comes to growth. Yet with kindness and compassion to self and to others, the load will always become lighter and more manageable.

Manipulation vs. Influence, What’s The Difference?

Effective Conflict Resolution

If you have the pulse of the team, you will easily be able to identify these behavioral changes. When you do, be mindful not to pry, yet ensure that your team member knows that you are there if they need to talk. On the other hand, they may come to you for advice; which gives you now an even bigger responsibility. You see, opening up is not always easy, but if you have earned that level of trust with them, focus on listening and guarding their confidence.
