It was a miracle that anyone still worked for us. I was a 28-year old executive in a fast-growing company. I was in way over my head.
I had a well-deserved reputation as a hothead and a jerk.
I was feared.
I was cocky.
And the lines of communication between my team and me were beyond cut off. They were non-existent.
So, it was indeed a miracle that anymore still worked for us.
The only saving grace was that there was another leader in the company who was great. His awesomeness apparently made up for me. Plus, I do suppose I had a few redeeming traits.
The good news is that, over time, I learned three valuable lessons. Those are the three lessons I want to share with you today. The three things a leader should never, ever, ever, ever do.
