True Strength

Management guru Seth Godin has a way of bringing it down to the basics. Here is his list that he simply titles:

Demonstrating Strength

  • Apologize
  • Defer to others
  • Avoid shortcuts
  • Tell the truth
  • Offer kindness
  • Seek alliances
  • Volunteer to take the short straw
  • Choose the long-term, sacrificing the short
  • Demonstrate respect to all, not just the obviously strong
  • Share credit and be public in your gratitude
  • Risking the appearance of weakness takes strength.
And I assure you, this is not just for business. It is a great way to develop a healthy, caring personal life with hopeful relationships across the board.
