Temper tantrums; inability to stay focused on details; promising to delegate and then micro-managing instead--sound familiar? These and any of a hundred more behavioral traits can trap a leader, forcing him or her into a negative pattern of behavior and freezing his or her ability to develop further. If you find yourself repeating a cycle of one or more negative behavioral traits, promising yourself again and again that you'll act differently next time, then exercise some personal tough love: admit that you won't act differently next time, and reach out for some help.
Find someone who can coach you through the behavioral changes you need to make by providing you with the tools and techniques your need to make it happen, and most importantly, who will hold you accountable over time. That’s the only way the change will become permanent.
