Leaders Face a Knowledge Conundrum – Their Own
Leaders face a conundrum of becoming so well versed in their industry and discipline that they become jaded in opening their minds to thinking they don’t know it all. Ego can be dangerous! However, if you are willing to listen to those who don’t agree with you and be open to putting your ego on the shelf, you might be surprised at the creative ideas that come your way. Encourage the team to take risks after intelligent thinking. Humble yourself by stepping back from thinking you know the answer and you might find a new strength. Let others find some of the answers. If you are willing to get comfortable with the uncomfortable, to be criticized by your fiercest critic and to let others step up and shine, you’ll want to listen to this podcast.
