This is to love and lead well.

What if they don’t have what you need and want?

What if no matter how much you blame, judge, and shame, or even coach, resource, practice empathic accountability, and have courageous conversations, they just don’t have what you need?

Stop going to an empty well looking for water.
They don’t have it.
And if they aren’t willing, well, they don’t have it.

Wrestle with what that means for you.
Feel it.
And go find it somewhere else.

This is to love and lead well.
This is freedom.
