Great leaders rise to the top, but many need development and training along the way. You can foster a leadership culture with strategies that support accountability, high performance, and leadership competencies. Understand the most important leadership priorities focus on how to connect performance back to business results, and discover ways to drive employee engagement through leadership strategy.
When there is something that requires objective, clear thinking in your business or personal life, challenge your natural propensity to see what you want to see and hear what you want to hear by:
- Challenging your assumptions - try to disprove, rather than prove, your hypothesis.
- Seek outside opinion - get feedback from others who may see things differently than you.
- Writing it down – the written word will make you feel more accountable to your analysis.
- Admitting you were wrong, when appropriate - we hate to admit it, but humility goes a lot farther than rationalizations and justifications.
