Some very sad news this week in the home business world, with one of the leaders taking his own life. No, I’m not using his name or the name of the company. I don’t want to exploit a tragedy. And I don’t want to do further damage to the company or injure his family even more.
It’s interesting to watch people respond. Some are saying this man made the choice he did because of changes in his company’s policy.
Did they follow him around ever minute of the day?
Do they know what was going on inside his head and his heart?
How come other leaders in this company didn’t make the same choice?
And if it happens in a different company, will those leaders do the same thing?
In every struggle you see the leaders emerge, as well as those operating from fear, greed, cowardice and plain old stupidity.
Which side of the equation do you want to be on?
Someone is watching you to see how they should respond.
And someone is watching to you to decide if you are a leader worth following…or a follower worth mentoring.
Do the right thing.
