Note to self: leadership and lessons

I need to remember that my staff, who are fairly new to the workforce, are, well… new. They need to learn lessons, fall on their faces, learn to stand up and walk again (recover), learn to work with different personalities and work styles, learn to listen to and understand different perspectives, learn what teamwork really means, and most of all (especially for what we’re trying to do)… learn to think and scale their thinking on a global and international scale.

And if I’m being honest here, these are all lessons that I am continually learning as well.

If I’m going to lead, I need to help them understand that we’re all going to learn and relearn all of these things together.
