24 Jun The Gift of Struggle: Life-Changing Lessons About Leading | Bobby Herrera
2019: Book #18
“We all struggle. Inside every struggle is a gift. Leaders share their gifts with others.”
That’s a quote from Bobby Herrera’s book, The Gift of Struggle: Life-Changing Lessons About Leading. Herrera is the cofounder and CEO of the Populus Group. He encourages leaders to share their stories.
What I’ve learned: let the team know your struggles and the lessons you’re learning from them. It builds a stronger culture. It raises up the next generation of leaders…and so much more.
“When there’s a gap between what you say and what you do, it undermines your integrity, making it harder for people to trust you.”
“Leadership amounts to wanting more for our people than we want from them.”
“Enduring cultures are never enforced by a top-down hierarchy. Everyone lives the culture, and therefore everyone must use their voice to contribute to it.”
This is a great book and a must read for any leader.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
That’s book #18 for 2019.
34 more to go.
Remember, all leaders are readers.
If you want to be a better leader…be a reader.
