If you’re on a team, if you’re organization, if you’re running a business, the story that you elevate has a massive impact on the mindset and the culture of the people that you are leading. Think about that and know that, and understand that.
How did we go from that guy to this toxic person who is undermining the organization? And what is it that you don’t know about what’s going on in this person’s life? But all of a sudden, everybody else is telling you, get rid of them. And you don’t know how you got to that point.
Clearly, when you get into a situation like this and you knew what’s going on with company, but just for someone that doesn’t understand the whole concept we work with companies, so you have an understanding of what the situation is on the ground that she’s going into, which means that you know that she’s going into a functional team, right?
But if you have enough leadership capital and you care about your people enough, when you explain why we’re doing what we’re doing and how these things, these steps along the way might give us a chance to actually increase investment over here and I might shift you from this job to that job or I might not be able to bring you back here, but when this happens and this happens, I now have an opportunity to bring you back.
