When you tell colleagues you know everything, it’s probably time to find a new job or retire.
Employees hungry to try new ideas, re-invent, improve process need to be allowed to fail. Just as today’s leaders failed in the past, it happened because it was an accepted part of developing future leaders. With failure comes wisdom. Teach your future replacements failure is not losing. Giving up is losing.
The last thing you say to someone, may be the last thing they’ll remember you for. Stop. Think. Speak.
If you are having a bad day due to the behavior of other’s, and take it out on those around you, how are you any better? Stop. Think. Speak.
If someone foretells the future of a project, and they happen to be correct, there are two things you should learn from that. First, your pride is affecting good judgement. Second, remember that not all wisdom needs to be learned the hard way.
