It is the hard days that define us

Wonderful insight from the lived experience. Thanks Bob Murphy.

‘How bad are you blokes going?’

It brings back many memories. CEO of an AFL club that does not look like winning, with the gap between performance and expectation getting wider by the week.

These are the mornings when you wake up knowing that regardless of what happened on the weekend, and no matter how bad the defeat, and while you may be bereft of ideas and inspiration, sleepless night and all – you still had to lead.

You have no option.

Leading wasn’t about riding in on your white horse as the man with all the answers; it was most often the opposite. Create space for a better conversation. Avoid default responses, as they are most likely to be driven by your bruised ego, selfishness and anger, admit you don’t know and you need help in making sense of it all. Be the learner.

…and remember always, it is the hard days that define us.
