DO YOU EXPERIENCE FEELINGS OF GUILT WHEN YOU SEEK TO IMPROVE YOUR POSITION IN LIFE?
It really is amazing how manipulative some people can be. From passive aggressive statements and veiled accusations to flat out deceptive emotional manipulations.
It happens in families where children are grown. It happens between teens. It happens in the office. It happens with weak and insecure leaders. When we feel like the last tool we have to “get our own way” or to control/ predict our outcomes rests is using a GUILT TRIP, we really need to check ourselves.
I am guessing most of us recognize such behavior in others long before we recognize it in ourselves. The power of a good leadership assessment tool like the 360 review will uncover some of the blind spots we can’t see, or won’t see.
If you have ever heard whispers, rumors or direct accusations of yourself using manipulative behavior, it’s time to get real. Not only is such behavior destructive to your team, it will scar your professional reputation and the level of your influence for years to come.
Leaders need to be focused on the needs of others and one way to do that is to focus on being better leaders and not using emotionally abusive pry bars to get results.
