The Nagging Tension Influential People Opt to Live With (Instead of Do Away With)

  • Leaders: Wherever you sit on the organizational ladder, people have access to you.
  • Parents: Children can, children deserve, and children need access to you.
  • Engage social media? People can get access to you (no matter how many privacy settings you lock down).

Here’s the reality: you’re an Accessible.

You’ll attempt to resolve the tension by becoming less accessible.

  1. It’s an outside-in approach.
  2. It sacrifices the opportunity to influence.
  3. It simply isn’t sustainable (or enjoyable).

Rather than resolve the tension, choose to remain in it.
