Leading a team is challenging.
Leaders might be respected
but we’re not always liked
because we have to
make the tough decisions,
have to push our teams
to perform,
have to talk to them
when things go wrong.

Jessica Alba,
and founder of
the Honest Company,

“Sometimes I’m a little more
iron fist than velvet glove.
I’m straight to the point.
I’ve made people cry.”
“I have to say,
‘This isn’t personal.
This is what needs to get done,
and it’s just as simple as that.
And …we’re not crying anymore.’”

Leadership isn’t a popularity contest.
We won’t always be liked.
