Great Leaders Know When to Forgive

Great Leaders Know When to Forgive | Empowering Women | Scoop.it

Leaders must be firm and foster accountability, but they also must know when to forgive past wrongs in the service of building a brighter future. One of the most courageous acts of leadership is to forgo the temptation to take revenge on those on the other side of an issue or those who opposed the leader's rise to power.

Instead of settling scores, great leaders make gestures of reconciliation that heal wounds and get on with business. This is essential for turnarounds or to prevent mergers from turning into rebellions against acquirers who act like conquering armies. Nelson Mandela famously forgave his oppressors.

A great example is Nelson Mandela who famously forgave his oppressors.

TRY TO UNDERSTAND:

In forgiveness we are not saying that what happened was OK.
To forgive requires a higher consciousness, it requires knowing a greater truth about the nature of reality. Forgiveness opens the door to the heart and allows love to return. To forgive means "To give as before."

Revenge is not justice and it is no strategy ... learn to forgive.

Don Dea's curator insight, December 15, 2014 12:13 AM

Let your life speak for you. Your effectiveness as a leader is tied to the image that others form about you, and your ability to project a leader’s presence is closely tied to who you are as a person and how you lead your life. Anyone can live to please others; the harder task is to live for yourself. Let your character speak for you. You can spend a lot of time crafting your leadership skills, but it will be your character—as seen through your words and actions—that tells the story of your leadership. Spend the time to learn who you are and what you value, and demonstrate that knowledge in the things you say and do. A true character makes a great leader. Let your virtue speak for you. The moral cement of leadership lies in virtue—right words and actions. They unite and preserve, while vices separate and destroy. For a virtuous leader, everything stems from that moral core. Be a person of virtue and you will be a great leader. Let your integrity speak for you. Stand by your principles. Refuse to accept less than the best from yourself. Ask of others only what you yourself are willing to give. Speak the truth even though it may create conflict. True integrity and great leadership mean doing the right thing, even when nobody else will see or know. - See more at: http://www.lollydaskal.com/leadership/let-your-leadership-speak-for-itself/#sthash.inBWU0iJ.dpuf
