If you can’t beat ’em, Mentoring Moments, the 1 min blog
We’re continuing the conversation on extreme leadership, challenging you to lead in a world where sticks and carrots don’t work.
For man’s anger does not promote the righteousness God [wishes and requires]. James 1:20 (AMP)
Our righteousness is of faith NOT fear. So what do you do with people who just won’t act right? If you can’t beat ‘em . . .
They won’t be creative. Their fear of making a mistake will cause them to stick to the status quo.
They’ll create false harmony. When conflict is avoided, trust is eroded and the entire team crumbles.
They’ll lead like you do, perpetuating a culture of fear, resentment and guilt.
Using anger to get people to do what you want is manipulation. Even if what you want is good for them. Instead, clearly declare the standards of your team and help them meet them. You’ll be less likely to beat them.
Success and Progress!
