Henry Ford missed something when he said, You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do. Actually you earn a reputation as a weak do-nothing leader, if life is always about intention apart from action.
Short-sighted leaders might say, I don’t care what people think of me. If leadership was done in a vacuum, what people think of you wouldn’t matter.
Leaders who don’t care about reputation are disconnected, aloof, or short-sighted.
Manager your reputation or someone else will.
