What did that sentence say?

Did you read it as “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence?”

But, this is not the case. If you have to, go back and read it over again.

Hopefully, you noticed that there are two “the” in that sentence. Most people will not see it.

Why?

Sometimes we see only what we expect to see.

What you need to learn is that your obligation as a leader is not to fall into having Bad Faith.  In other words, an engineer is not an engineer in the same sense that a chair is a chair.  Understand?  If you don’t then you are in real trouble, let me tell you.  I will also be happy to explain in more detail for those who don’t.  If you are using Bad Faith as justification for your decisions as a leader then people are following you, if they follow you at all, through something called “coercion” aka force or threats of force.  That is NOT what we call LEADERSHIP.  Now if people choose to follow you then you have much greater influence, impact, and effectiveness.  Oh, and BTW, minimizing your OWN faults and increasing the BLAME on others would qualify as Bad Faith.  Think you don’t do it? I would reconsider that if I were you.  SQUAREROOTOFZERO
