Does it feel so good to "tell it like it is" - let people have it when you feel like it - that you are willing to reduce yourself to the workings of your amygdala; the raw reactions, emotions that exert themselves when you feel triggered. YES - it feels good! Leaders, who want to accomplish big things, need to be more thoughtful, if you ask me. The immediate satisfaction you will feel may be VERY short lived.
Being Gritty and down to earth is about A LOT more than "telling it like it is" and being a straight-talker.
An open and authentic leader knows how to be open and vulnerable without overwhelming others or giving up their vision and focus.
A thoughtful leader who has taken the time to polish up their message to clearly articulate and contribute to the bigger picture may be more effective in their message - isn't that what it's all about?
Next week's FQT (Fall Quick Tip); the Hint: For what do you seek permission and for what, forgiveness?
Hey while you're here, learn a bit about the new course I've been testing in late 2017 called it takes Grit. I've been contracted to deliver the basics of this course at a few professional conferences and professional associations in both 2017 and 2018 and I plan to deliver the course in both classroom environments and on-line later in 2018.

It turns out the infamous #GoogleMemo was just the beginning this year and my choice to focus on Sexual Harassment in the #RRT this fall and winter was prophet. Who knew the conversation about sexual misconduct in professional settings would erupt so fully this fall!?
