The Problem With Destructive Comments When Leading

Let’s face it; we all have times when we say things in a way that we later regret.

While we are all human, if you are finding that your normal default is towards destructive comments, it’s time to take action.

If your default style is to use destructive comments, you will:

  • Make yourself unpopular.
  • De-motivate others.
  • Alienate yourself.
  • Stop any creativity or risk taking.

So if you want more success through others when leading, focus on tackling and addressing the way you provide comments.
