Why is it that we feel like leaders have to please everyone? That is not possible. Our world is made up of an incredible variety of personalities and opinions. As leaders we have to work with concepts that move the majority, plans that can gain consensus, and a style that has a broad appeal. Leaders cannot win over every single person and attempting to do so is a waste of effort and time. Don’t spend too much energy on that last negative holdout. Some people are just never happy. For that matter some are simply unwilling to get behind good leadership. Consider this quote…
Don’t try to win over the haters.
You’re not the jackass whisperer.
