The Peril of Leading Alone

The Peril of Leading Alone

If you feel always right as a leader that no one can offer alternative perspectives in accomplishing your corporate mission, the corporate vision is lost.

Typically, during Q/A session in our discovery innovation workshop, if I see that Chairman and CEO are dominating proceedings, with minimal inputs from other directors, I would politely ask them to leave, temporarily.

Once that happens, magically, everyone will like to talk at the same time. Unless you can get those men and women to raise their hands even when you are around, you are not leading.
