I am terrible at "Celebrating Success"...both my own success and the success of my team. I'm also not great at promoting my teams. I tend to point out their flaws rather their what makes them great. I feel I do a good job of promoting myself, though. (or maybe I'm bad at that too lol!)
I find the success thing to be rooted in the thought that the success isn't "enough" to be celebrated. It's never big "enough"...and I don't want people to look at me as a poor leader who undeservedly celebrates fake success.
The team promotion is rooted in a similar thing in that I usually take roles that require transformation...meaning the team is in trouble. I want people to know that I see the problems and I'm working on them. However, even when I turn the team around (which I always do) - I never move to "WE ARE AWESOME!!" I usually move to "it's fine"...just in case someone points out I still have a flaw I can fall back on "I KNOW...and here's how I'm going to fix it!"
It's like I don't want my leadership to be questioned.
Help!!! I need to change this but I don't know how to look at it differently!
