Identify & move
Let’s talk about you for a minute.
You know that feeling you get when you see Bob?
That pit of your stomach feeling? That ugh!
You won’t give Bob a fair shake until you name “it.” We aren’t robots, and emotionally you won’t let whatever that slight was “go,” especially if you carry it.
You have two options – stop working with Bob, or find out what that feeling is and resolve it.
The good news is, addressing the issue is much easier once you find it.
How do you show it? Write it out. Get that feeling out.
Supreme Court Justice Brandeis once said, “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants.”
After the feeling is out, think about yourself. What causes you to have those feelings?
What about Bob?
Bob has nothing to do with it. Your feelings are up to you.
If you intend to lead, you have to master yourself.
