“Saved” by Superhero Effort

The Antidote to the Peter Principle and Superhero Syndrome

  1. We must first be willing to identify the why behind our leadership. Did we take on a leadership role because we felt it was the only way to advance in our careers? Do we truly enjoy the role of bringing individuals together to accomplish something larger than ourselves? Do we truly enjoy putting our own needs aside for a season to let others take center stage? If we struggle to answer any of these questions, the best antidote might be stepping out of our current role. It might be time to explore other directions, at least for a season.
  2. The next component of the antidote involves creating a filter to evaluate your daily work. Are our actions causing those around us to grow? Are our actions helping those we lead to become more effective? Or are our actions feeding our own superhero ego?
