Take It

Standing up for yourself is standing up for others. Leaders need to keep in mind that when we put up with bad behavior directed at us because, hey, we’re the leader and we can take it, we send a very clear signal that such behavior is acceptable towards others in the community as well. This is bad news for people in the community who don’t have the power the leader has.

Just because you can take it doesn’t mean you should.
