about taking turns.
It doesn’t take much experience to know that to be heard, you have to listen. Leaders know that. So do teammates and people who understand human nature. Relationships are an ebb and flow, a “give and get” kind of thing.
From childhood, I learned to take turns at being first, at choosing, at having the lead.
Now, I’m grown up and I’ve been thinking about that “taking turns” rule. It’s automatic. I take my turn and I step back for someone else to move forward. When I don’t I feel the world look at me. Is that best way?
I’ve been wondering for weeks now . . . should a leader stop leading because it’s supposed to be someone else’s turn?
