Leaders at the top of the organization are accountable to deliver results. Some leaders believe results come from questioning others. Here are 4 questions leaders need to ask themselves, before they begin to ask anything of others:
- When’s the last time someone disagreed with me in a meeting?
- What am I teaching?
- Am I getting 100% from my people?
- How is my competition eating my lunch?
Leadership is not a title, it is a position. A leader’s influence positions people and teams for success. This positioning does not come with a salary range, but is found at any level of an organization.
Want to gut-check the quality of the leaders around you? What do your supervisor or manager or director or VP or SVP or C-level or board member clearly exhibit as answers to each of these 4 questions?
This book provides further grist for building a strong team.
