What do you inspire?
July 10, 2017

You’re the new boss, with a new vision for your team. What if your people aren’t crazy about that new vision? What if they aren’t all in?

When I posed that question to leadership coach Cort Dial on the show recently I expected him to say something about finding people who were all in.

Nope.

Cort reminded me loyalty isn’t something you demand. It’s something you inspire. Do you want the truth, or do you want people telling you what they think you want to hear?

The better your people the more likely they are to have points of view that differ from yours. Isn’t that the point of having more than one person in a company? To get the work done, sure -- but to stay alert to better ways of doing it.
