TRIPLE III TIME: Ranking Compromise #1

There are so many leadership challenges and complex decisions that are “front & center” …at all management levels today.  And part of every challenge/decision is the quest for both sides of an issue to try and get you to “join their side!” Whether the issue is politics, international debates, religion, schools or 21st century business approaches…every discussion drives you to join a specific side.IMG_4570

But think for a moment if everyone were to agree (even take pledge) that  before any discussion begins on a tough topic…that Ranking Compromise #1 will be the exclusive priority?!

What a powerful leadership position!  What if every meeting…at every level began with a leader’s announcement that everyone had to identify and discuss at least three compromise options on every issue?  There would be NO time allowed for attempts to persuade someone to see and come over to “their side of the aisle”.  Nor would anyone have the opportunity to explain why “my way” is better than “your way”.  Only compromise.

This week’s TRIPLE III TIME message really proclaims that Ranking Compromise #1 has evolved into the most important yet absent leadership trait/skill in modern day time.  Ranking Compromise #1 takes mental strength, solid commitment and extreme patience.  However, when successful the resulting discussions, positions and future thought would be example setting to everyone…everywhere!
