The right thing and the easy thing are seldom the same thing… in parenting, in relationships, in leadership. The easy thing is a short term gain, like maintaining shareholder value. The right thing is a long term gain, like investing in an expensive product for the long term market share it can provide. There’s a potentially tough conversation that needs to be had. The easy thing would be to ignore it (avoiding a potential conflict)… the right thing is to have it. The obvious upside is the positive outcome of the conversation; the intangible outcome is the legacy I leave in modeling strong authentic leadership. And that leaves a legacy.
