Don’t confuse emotional softness with weakness

Maybe one of your team members is a softie. A dreamer. A sensitive soul.

Be careful you don’t correlate that with him being weak.

Maybe he is weak, maybe he isn’t.

His emotional sensitivity is not a barometer of strength.

The only barometer of strength is how people behave in the face of adversity.

The best way to find out who’s weak and who’s strong in your company is to face adversity.

Turn up the temperature.
