Winning The Unpopularity Contest

by | Aug 19, 2020

With politics…you only need 51% of your constituents to like you, and the rest, “Who cares?”

Yet, in the business world, it’s pretty difficult leading an organization when you’ve got only a slim majority of support. You’ve got to hope you’re garnishing more votes than 51% or it’s going to be a tough haul.

The challenge is; however, as a leader, sometimes you’ve got to make decisions that have much less support than that. On occasion, you’re the only one who sees things a certain way.

And, if it’s the right decision, you’ve got to make it anyway. This can make you quite unpopular.

Join Michael and Jim as they discuss strategies during these stressful leadership moments to be able to win the unpopularity contest.
