Risky Business

No.. this isn't a post in honor of Tom Cruise or running and sliding around your hardwood floors in your underwear.  Although, leadership might make you do crazy things.  It is a risky endeavor when are given the opportunity and choose to lead.  There is a great quote in a book I have begun today.  "The hope of leadership lies in the capacity to deliver disturbing news and raise difficult questions in a way that people can absorb, prodding them to take up the message rather than ignore it or kill the messenger."

Have you ever had a message that you knew, as a leader, needed to be shared?  Did you share it?  What was the outcome?  Regret or a fond memory.  The journey of the leadership process can be exhilarating, but have to dare to take the risk.
