"In this day of digital information way too many bits of information are at risk of “hijack” and discretion is a must. Yet, even still, being elusive and coy with your team could cost you the trust of those closest to you."
LEADERS MUST BALANCE DISCRETION WITH AUTHENTIC TRANSPARENCY.
When you realize the magnitude of what you know you suddenly tremble with fear at the thought of what someone else, anyone else can know about you.
Last night I heard a poignant phrase on a TV drama I am found of called “Seal Team”. I know the show is made up and most of what happens is over aggrandized but this statement rings so true it must be considered by leaders of all levels.
“You cannot connect the dots you don’t have.”
In this particular scenario the team was in a hot spot because of significant piece of missing information. Their intel officer took the blame on herself and her commander offered her solace with the previous comment.
Ask yourself this: if a 15 year old can hack the digital life of another teen and cause SWAT to be called to their home, how vulnerable are you?
In this day of digital information way too many bits of information are at risk of “hijack” and discretion is a must.
Yet, even still, being elusive and coy with your team could cost you the trust of those closest to you.
BALANCE is key. As a leader you must know, who needs to know.
You must also know what no one needs to know and you must MIND THE DOTS!!
