The soundtrack sets the tone and without it the moment seems to fail to rise to the extent of its actual potential. We just don’t get everything out of the moment we could without the music pushing us toward that place. As a leader you are writing the score with your words, actions, and attitude. Nothing the Next Level Leader does is without effect.

Unmute Your Leadership | Part 3View Post
A leader can make or break a team by how they exemplify correction. At some point every leader will be tasked with the correction of a team member. Improper correction will mute your leadership and make you less effective. Both you and your team will suffer because of it.
The examples of improper correction are many. In this world of abuse on every level people are too familiar with the pain, embarrassment, and discouraging effects of poorly executed correction. The result of poor correction is the reduction of influence in that person or team’s life. That leader has been muted.
Leaders are often frustrated by the fact that their words, lessons, and rants aren’t making a difference in the lackluster performance of their team. Your problem may be that your leadership is muted. You are saying the right things, but your team can’t hear you. Your words are being drowned out by the screaming reality of your example. The most impacting lessons you will ever teach will be taught as others see what you do vs hear what you say.
