In John Maxwell’s “The 360 Degree Leader,” he shares a concept called the leadership loop. This concept helps you build your leadership principles and practice so that you are evolving yourself and empowering your team. There are seven principles involved in the loop, and the number one principle is caring.
Caring is a huge part of how I show up as a leader, a coach, and in my own life, and it has been an important ingredient in my success formula. When I get to the essence of my core value of love, caring is the verb I use to express that. If you can assess how you are showing up in a caring way in your leadership stance, then you can begin to learn how to embody this more in your life.
But standing in cancel culture, we need to learn to care for each other first. People are trying to show up in the best way they know how. Most are not malicious, but being called out for being wrong should not be at the detriment of someone else’s career. We have to let people make mistakes, love on them anyways, and let them grow from it.
