Dense management lingo to avoid: “Lighting your candle”

Dense management lingo to avoid: “Lighting your candle” Smaller FB

One of the most annoying me the most is the one where leaders assert that their job is to “light people’s candles” through their leadership. What’s the problem you ask? How dare anyone assume that there is not a candle alit in everyone already? The point of leadership is bringing out this light out of everyone such that it may illuminate to its full potential.

This light I am referring to is the zest for life, our passions, our talents, our desires, our love, our gratefulness, our skills, our experience, our compassion, our empathy, and so much more pouring out of us in one intense beam.

Remember that there is a bright light shining within you. You need no permission letting it shine
