Leaders want to bring out the best in others, spending time reading and learning. Every once in a while, they come across a gem that they’re sure will result in substantial improvements.

What do you do, though, when the team doesn’t go there? This is when people start talking about resistance to change and looking for ways to motivate the team into giving it a try. They might even push the team into doing the new thing, but to what end?

Start by reminding yourself that everyone is doing their best. Ask powerful questions to start understanding what’s happening. Do they feel under pressure to deliver? Are you looking through rose-coloured glasses? Do they have change fatigue?

In the end, though, sometimes the right thing to do is to walk away. Walking away isn’t a failure on your part; it’s a sign of just how strong your leadership truly is.

You’ve got this.
