Questions on Two Subjects That Deserve Much More Attention
Courage. Are you sincerely trying to be savvy and diplomatic or does a courage deficit keep you from telling the truth? Is a lack of candor seriously harming your team? Does there need to be a "Blunt Truth Time" in which people are encouraged to say out loud what many have been thinking? Will it take a disaster before people start speaking frankly?
Impatience. Although you may think of yourself as mellow, does your eagerness for action cause you to rush when you should slow down? Are you distinguishing between decisions that are easy to reverse (and thus can be made quickly) and those that are impossible or difficult to reverse? Does your impatience produce unnecessary stress on you and others?
