Dear Leader, if you’re frustrated over having to say it twice, you’re in for a long life.

Being a broken record comes with the territory. Not only are you going to have to say things multiple times over, you’re going to have to get creative with different ways of saying it. Sometimes, people need to hear the “why” more than once and from many different angles before it finally clicks. This is completely normal.

When I think back on various scenarios in my own growth, I remember needing the same thing from my leader many times. And I’m grateful they stayed patient with me until I got it.

Lighten up. Don’t resent it so much. Be the leader to others that you would want for yourself.

Dear Leader, you are not a slave to your tendencies. Choose your behaviors intentionally.

No matter what the dozens of personality test results say about you, your behavioral tendencies are not permanent fixtures of who you are.

Behaviors are meant to be flexed and adapted to affirm our values, improve our communication, and better serve the people around us.

Personality style is not your anchor point, values are. Choose your behaviors intentionally.

Dear Leader #0012
