5 Tips on Great Leadership – Number 4
Tip 4: Be Ready to Change
Sometimes it helps to seek advice from an outsider. If the advisor is any good, the blind spots will be revealed quickly but this is of little use unless the directors and management are prepared to change. If we keep following a path which clearly isn’t working then we shouldn’t be surprised if we keep getting the same negative result!
Asking for help is good BUT if we are really truthful we already know the problems and solutions so why do we need confirmation?
True leaders have awareness, empathy and humility and the self confidence to learn and make changes themselves. They will also be honest and contemplate if they are in the right job.
