A simple way to know you're missing some leadership skills

"You believe in some great practices that the team needs to follow, but you can't convince or get the team to follow them - even the simplest ones."

"If that happens to you - it's time to visit the idea that you may be lacking some core people skills, and leadership skills."

Ouch, what an indictment. But, it is true. If I want to make positive changes and can't lift the proverbial lantern high enough for them to see, it is my problem. Those that I'm failing to influence don't see a problem or get frustrated. I guess it is time for a refresher read of some of my old books on the subject. Covey, Carnegie, etc, here I come.
