What's Right Doesn't Seem Right
Leadership is so hard to get right because what's right doesn't seem right. For example:— Claire Lew (@clairejlew) February 21, 2019
To be viewed as credible, we have to admit things that might erode credibility (e.g. mistakes).
To help our team solve problems, we have to avoid stepping in to solve the problem ourselves.
This tweet reminds me of so many things:
The Fourth Law of Trust from The Secrets of Consulting

Romer's Rule from The Secrets of Consulting
The best way to lose something is to struggle to keep it.
The path to success is through not trying to succeed.
I guess that's why life's so hard.
