A short time ago, I found the following tweet:
Zusammenfassung meiner Führungs- und Leitungs-Philosophie:
My leadership philosophy in a nutshell:
- Have AND show empathy and respect!
- Do not spread fear!
Both this statement and the tweet were from my friend Aebby (@Team_im_Projekt), also known as Dr. Eberhard Huber. I admire him very much.
? Consequently, I do not wish to weaken his message. And I would like to add three comments:
- For me, appreciation is also part of respect. Consequently, it is all about empathy AND respect & appreciation.
- It is difficult not to spread fear if you fear something yourself. And since I am often afraid, I often notice that I also spread fear. I find that a pity, but on the other hand, I forgive myself because it looks absolutely human to me.
- My third comment is only that the described leadership philosophy should not be limited to leadership but also be a common life philosophy.
All this does not make it easier. Perhaps the only thing for us to do is become more mature and wiser. Which is also easier said than done.
