Take Responsibility

December 23rd, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I had a strange experience the other day.  I was talking to a CEO that I have mentored on and off over the last 3 years.  I, along with others, have provide him with a range of advice and guidance on how he can potentially grow his business.  This advice and guidance is based on years of experience and if given with all the best intentions, especially since none of us are being paid.

During the discussion he turned around and started blaming me and the others for the poor performance of his business.  While I have never claimed to have all the answers, i was a little taken aback.  Was all the information we have provided him wrong or was something else at play?
