The Good Authority Manifesto
*A little teaser from the inside cover of the book. Good Authority is ...
… the presence to name the things that most people are afraid to.
… the kindness to speak up today instead of waiting until tomorrow.
… the patience to meet each person where they are on the journey.
… the generosity to challenge them to go a little bit further.
… the fortitude to not accept excuses in place of responsibility.
… the curiosity to ask questions that you don’t know the answers to.
… the wisdom to resist the comfortable answers and hold out for the right ones.
… the willingness to make an unpopular stand if it helps one person grow.
… the transparency to share what you feel with each member of your team.
… the strength to wait for others to discover their truth for themselves.
… the integrity to never ask someone to live up to a standard that you don’t hold yourself to.
… the vulnerability to say what you think even if you believe it won’t change the outcome.
… the audacity to assume that you can change the world.
… and the humility to be wrong about all of it and start over again tomorrow.
