Who Am I?

Originally posted on CU Insight on 5/1/2015

I’m the one that lets others take the credit.

I’m the one that when blame is passed around, I bear the brunt of it.

I’m responsible for my ship and I accept that responsibility gladly and humbly.

I’m the one that navigates the ship, straight and true.

I’m the one that changes course to avoid swells and rough seas.

I listen more than I speak.

I learn more than I teach.

I’m available when needed but also need “me” time to finish my tasks.

I’m the one that tells everyone what a great job you’re doing.

I’m the one that is honest with you when you need to improve.

I don’t point fingers. I take action.

I don’t hide. I’m right in front of you.

I expect you to do what you think is right.

I will correct you if you could have done it better. But I will not fire you for doing what you thought was right at the time.

I will delegate certain duties to you and will expect you to accept them with appreciation. After all, I gave you these duties because I trust you.

I won’t be here forever.

I am always training my replacement.

I have your back.

To get to you, people will have to go through me first.

I will not always tell you everything. Some things are “need to know.”

I will tell you everything that you do need to know.

I expect you to challenge me, respectfully and honestly. I welcome different opinions.

I do not want you to “walk on eggshells” around me. I’m not that fragile. Neither are you.

I will hold you accountable.

I will implement new procedures. I will give you time to adjust.

I expect you to adjust.

I am your first phone call.

I do not expect you to hide anything from me – ever.

I will defend you if you are worth defending.

I will never hold you back.

I want you to succeed.

Who am I?

I am your LEADER.
