Everything we do as leaders is magnified.
Every compliment, nod of approval, and encouraging word is amplified and has the ability to inspire and drive our teams forward.
This is a fantastic creative power that enables us to move mountains and accomplish lofty targets.
On the flip side, any negative feedback, no matter how trivial is also amplified, such that even the smallest criticism can be felt like a stake through the heart.
So imagine the impact of bigger criticisms and how much damage they can do, the stress that they create, which then goes on to hinder progress. The exact opposite of what we are trying to achieve.
We need to be very careful how we wield this power, which is both creative but also dangerously destructive.
As leaders, our goal is to create!
