Today I want to talk about the joy, trepidation, (and heartbreak) of being a leader.
If you know me from a while back, you might think that I am a “natural leader”. If I were to only observe my social interactions, I would argue the same; but the truth is, I am terrified of the formal responsibility. I have no problem with “informal leadership” in a social circle; you know, simple things, be the one that leads the group of friends on making plans, or to be the one that gets everyone to agree on something particular in my nuclear family. That kind of stuff.
But I always ran away from the formality of the title career-wise.
The truth is that I never thought I’d be good enough.
I had many types of leaders during my 10-year run in the corporate world. Some were good, some were great, some were bad, and some were terrible; but every single one of them taught me a lesson in something. And no matter what kind of leader they were, there were times where none of them were particularly popular with their teams. They had to make tough decisions and enforce them. It is a very complicated job.
I knew that the decision of opening our own business meant that I could no longer run from the challenge. I had a very basic idea of the type of leader I wanted to be, and R had his; but we both agreed that we wanted to lead with compassion and empathy. Since we had both been employees for a long time, we knew what it was like to be on the other side.
It started pretty awesome; we found AMAZING people to work with. They helped us during the toughest of times. We were all in synchrony. We worked alongside them for the longest time. I was a cashier/waitress in the front of the house team, and R was a line cook for months.
From the start we were super flexible, loving and understanding with our teams. We want the best for them and I could tell they wanted the same for us. I honestly can say that I love them.
Leading in such a way has certainly brought us enormous joy and has surrounded us with great humans.
