Your Leadership Story: Use Your Story to Energize, Inspire and Motivate
Tim Tobin, Oakland, CA: Berrett-Koehler Publishers (2015)
“As a leader, you will likely be required to compromise on some issues. You will have to take a stand or have a position about various subjects. You should have a clear understanding of those things on which you are unwilling to compromise. That is a natural part of leadership. And it is your job as a leader to build the best culture you can – one that is productive, collaborative, flexible, and fair, and delivers results that matter.
As part of this, you may find a few areas in which you are unwilling to compromise. These usually center on your core values. The likelihood is that you can act out of your core values in a variety of ways without having to compromise them (p. 32).”
Your Leadership Story is available from the OSU Leadership Center.
