Leadership Lessons from Work

Some things I have been learning at work (maybe they'll apply to your life as well) ...

- You have to own your own development. No one is just going to hand things to you that will magically make you grow.
- Some of the best lessons are found in trial and error, evaluation, and trying again.
- Conflict usually isn't as bad as we think it is going to be.
- A lot of problems can be avoided with a simple conversations.
- Everyone requires recognition in a different form. Identify it and give it.
- Slowing down to think and evaluate is difficult. But it is worth the effort.
- Setting aside your feelings about a person to objectively evaluate their performance is tough.
- Most people want to be trained so they can succeed.
- It is crucial to have your 'aces' in the right places, at the right times.
