Why am I here?
It’s not enough for a good leader to surround himself with good people. Leaders must allow those people to do what they were hired to do. Sometimes it’s easy to just go with our own assumptions when those assumptions affirm the direction we prefer. Unfortunately, even as a leader, our own inexperience can cause us to doubt the wisdom of the expert we chose to include on our team. Great leadership doesn’t just hire well. Great leadership trusts those that they hire to make decisions.
