FailureFailing at anything sucks.


Failing at anything sucks. Especially when all eyes are on you. But you do not become a successful leader without having experienced failure along the way. 

Failure can come in several forms when leading a team:

  • Making bad financial decisions
  • Bringing in the wrong people
  • Overpromising and under-delivering
  • Inconsistency
  • Not properly communicating the vision and everyone’s role in mission success. 

When you make mistakes, own them and let the team know what you are going to make it right. Be as prepared as you possibly can and make adjustments along the way.
