Assault vs Leadership

Assault vs Leadership

Reading Time: < 1 minute

You don’t lead by hitting people over the head—that’s assault, not leadership.  

“He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.”

—Isaiah 40:11

I didn’t get this for a very long time. In fact, I was for many years rather convinced that the stick probably worked better than the carrot. Ultimately, I probably did a ton of harm.

Before you decide to be brutally honest with people, make sure that you’re not enjoying the brutality more than the honesty.
