Jason Stasyszen (@br8kthru) on The Worst Leadership Lesson I Ever Learned, I Learned in Kindergarten

Being “fair” over treating people as individuals leaves a lot of people suffering needlessly. It also becomes the excuse for us to not do anything (because we can’t do it for all).

Tom Dixon (@MondayisGood) on Misunderstandings are Always Your Fault, Even if They’re Not

I like it. I do think you have to have a certain amount of tact to pull it off without sounding condescending, but if you have the right personality for it I can see it working well. Thanks for sharing this.

This is Tom’s full comment and a great point to keep in mind if you try to implement any of the suggestions I give in the post.

Lily Kreitinger (@LilyKreitinger) on The Worst Leadership Lesson I Ever Learned, I Learned in Kindergarten

You’re so spot on!!! It would be like me being a parent and buying my son and husband a Cinderella activity set for Christmas because my daughter loves that and she’s getting one, so everyone in the family should get one too.

Everyone (Mark Sieverkropp (@skropp2), Carol Dublin (@lcdublin), Wade Thorson (@Wade_Thorson), Bret Wortman (@BretWortman), and others) who got involved in a very touching conversation on Letters from Dad

Lulu on The Only Way to Build True Loyalty in Leadership

It seems like “caring” has become a dirty word in business. “Stick to the facts, mam” is more of the standard. It often is a cold hard world out there, and when someone shows caring in a practical way, like time off when needed, it melts your heart and strengthens your bond.

This is a must read comment for any leader. Read the full comment here.
