“I’ve got your back.”
Leading isn’t an easy job.
At times, it can seem as if you’re on an island.
Regardless of the number of supportive people you have around you, sometimes the loneliness outweighs the support.
If you’re leading effectively, often it comes with some opposition.
Opposition magnifies the loneliness.
When tough decisions are having to be made, leaders are often left with a decision to keep a few happy, or please the One that called them.
Every leader needs to know that someone has their back.
Every leader needs to know that some people, regardless of the situation, are going to support them.
Every leader needs to know that when unpopular decisions are made, some won’t abandon their support.
So, who’s back do you have?
Have you told them?
