Priceless Professional Development:
Volume 7, Issue 76                                            March 2015

There are no perfect leaders. I've never known any - have you?  It can be a tough job with a heavy load of responsibility full of pressure, change and Autocratic Leadershipcompeting interests.  


Most leaders will occasionally have more than a few "I just did some thing that makes me look like a jerk" moments.  I believe that that is just part of being a leader and being human!  


Can you recover from those "I was rude" or "I was impatient and didn't listen" or "I just did my best impression of a dictator and demanded compliance" moments?     

I say you CAN recover - but only if you get really good at a particular skill. It's what one of my favorite bosses did really well.  I still think highly of him 20 years later because he had mastered this skill, even though he had plenty of 'jerk moments' when we worked together.


Find out what that skill is, rate yourself with a free quiz and download a Memory Jogger card with six actions items for doing more of this skill, here: Autocratic Leadership or Just a Jerk Sometimes? The One Skill That Can Rescue a 'Sometimes Jerk' Leader...  



 **This month's article includes a quiz, action steps, a video of an autocratic leader and more.  Check it out, here.
