Starting off a series on Leadership Sandtraps, Adam Quiney talks about the sand trap that is TIMWATDIZZCRY that stands for Tell Me What to Do so I Can Resist/Resent You For It. Someone operating in this sandtrap tends to be incredibly reliable in finding out and/or looking for what needs to be done and do it. Consequently, they tend to suffer from a chronic lack of having their own needs met. Tune in to this episode to learn if you have the tendency to create this sand trap.
One of the things you’ll notice as you deepen yourself as a leader is it becomes less and less about having a conversation about leadership, and more about being in a conversation with someone as a leader. In the first of a series on leadership sand traps, Adam Quiney explains what these sand traps are and touches on why they exist, how you have no hope of avoiding them, and consequently, what to do about them. He also touches on the impact of your strong suit on the way you relate to people, and how, while it will earn you results and promotions, it will simultaneously become a sore point for you.
