Dealing With a Disappointing Leader (Without Damaging Your Career)

Let me paint an all too familiar picture for you. A new leader comes into your organization, you’re so excited to work with them and learn from them. Then you discover they don’t have the leadership skills you thought they would have.

We’ve all been there. 

Maybe they lack vision or they are terrible with accountability or they don’t take responsibility for their actions. Either way, a disappointing leader can knock the wind out of your sails, and if you’re not careful, your career too. 

Instead of letting a disappointing leader hold us back, what steps can we take to maintain control of our careers? In this episode, I talk about mitigating the effects of a disappointing leader.

Leaders come and go. But your performance matters every single day. Focus on self-authoring and the rest will work itself out. - Jen Thornton
