Friday Feature 8.8.14 – 12 Weak Habits Leaders Must Break

This week’s most clicked article from Monday’s post? About leaders and their weak habits. Have a look if you missed it earlier in the week:

12 Weak Habits Every Leader Must Break

After you’ve read the article, here are a few thoughts.

1. Good leaders know their weaknesses.

A respected pastor friend of mine, Bob Combs, says repeatedly: know what you do well and delegate the rest.

The fact that this article is written and read is helpful – as leaders, can we admit those weaknesses?

2. The encouragement: get accountability!

I love to lead as part of a team. Yes, we all have ideas and our team even looks to me for guidance. But accountability is part of the process. Having a team protects leaders from trying to lead out of the very weaknesses mentioned in this article.

3. Respect and credibility are earned.

They really don’t come with a title. They come as people trust you, get to know you, and develop a relationship with you. This one links to accountability. If people perceive you’re accountable to others, it’s easier for them to trust you.

These are some of my thoughts, what are yours?

Think. Is there anything you’d add to this list? How can you best help the leaders in your lives?

Act. If you lead, take some specific steps. If you want to better support leaders, have some specific and honest conversations as you’re able.
