+++ IT'S TRICKY +++
Have you ever tried to please everyone? How did that work out?
Here's a quote that I've kept close to me: you can please some of the people some of the time but you can't please all of the people all of the time.
Another quote that I really like is: "Some will, some won't, so what? Next!" Another ending that I've also seen and liked is, "... someone else is waiting."
Even though I've held these quotes close to me, it's not as easy, at least for me, to put them into action.
I used to want everyone to always like me but I've realized over time that it's an impossible feat. I've learned to be okay with it but it's not my default.
So, I did my best to avoid certain sticky topics or situations that might require me to confront or take decisive action that more than likely will offend or hurt someone.
You could say that's my conflict avoidance self acting out at that time. It's tricky. Right?
So what should you do as a leader when all around you there is a movement on the way under the umbrella of Black Lives Matter to get rid of racism? Add to that the tension between those who believe All Lives Matter and Black Lives Matter. What should you do?
In this episode, you'll hear a direct, bold, and uncompromising straight talk on the matter about what really matters.
