Mistakes leaders make...

Karl Bradley ·
Some mistakes leaders make... Putting themself ahead of others; not being self-aware and/or self-reflective. Betraying others' trust Being certain; (Re)acting too fast Not living up to their own values; inauthentic Overly enamored with their own vision; arrogance If it seems like it's all about you, you're in the gig for the wrong reason. It shouldn't be all about the leader. Trust must be present for there to be betrayal. This is the worst & perhaps hardest for people to recover from.

Suicide Prevention & Awareness

Jason M Jowers ·
A recent study found that at least four times as many service members and war veterans of post-9/11 conflicts have died of suicide than died in combat (Suitt, 2021). The report also notes that the increasing rates of suicide for both active duty service members and veterans is outpacing those of the general population, which is concerning since historically the suicide rates for service members have been lower than those for the general population.

Knowing how we approach our daily interactions is important for creating moments of clarity that fit with our values. Naive & Distrust Some of us approach awarding our trust from a place of distrust making it hard for others to convince us we should place our trust in them.
