R U Judgy McJudgerson? Do you judge others based on your own standards or comfort zones? Most people do. Leaders should not us such an arbitrary standard.
Most people know the old saying “judge not lest you be judged” yet they judge others anyway. Ironically, what is meant by the phrase and the way most people apply or have little to do with each other.
It is also true that many people don’t see judgement in the way they scrutinize or criticize others. ESPECIALLY when what they are “judging” are good deeds.
No one wants to be “judged” when they are being held accountable for their bad behavior or bad choices. We all have a million excuses for why we do what we do. But try to give up a bad habit which you once shared with friends like, drinking, smoking, cussing, gambling, staying out late on work or school nights and see how long it takes them to SHAME YOU INTO A DRINK!
Leaders need to set a standard which is clear, objective, fair and equitable. Not a double standard. Not two sets of rules. Then do all you can to meet or exceed the same standard you hold others too.
