I had a conversation with a friend today – one that is also doing some work for my main client.
We were talking about the CEO, and I told my friend, “He doesn’t hire people so he can tell them what to do – he hires people to tell him what he should do”.
That’s a Leader.
Boss’s think they know the answers to everything – that they are “the smartest guys in the room”.
Leaders know how to surround themselves with smart people – and they listen to them.
