What is sad is that dysfunctional leaders are of the mindset that they are doing their best. They don’t realize that their largely subconscious desires cause them to be dysfunctional in their decision making and actions.
If you do not have healthy mindsets, those around you know it, and they respond just as much to your mindsets as they do your behaviors. Stated differently, those you lead care more about who you are than what you do.
The reality is that If we want to improve ourselves, our influence, and our effectiveness, that means that we need to change the lenses that we are using the view the world… We need to change our mindsets.
