[FLR] “Leaders Save Time by Asking 1 Simple Question” | Friday Leadership Report

Happy Friday,

 

As a young professional, I took a walk with my former boss, and he taught me one of the most important leadership & business lessons that I have ever learned. Peter Ward ran a very successful executive recruitment firm & he asked my opinion on an important topic. I remember my inside voice asking, “why is this highly successful leader who I deeply respect asking me this? I have no idea what I’m talking about…”

 

The lesson I learned is that successful leaders are humble. Successful leaders value perspective on issues from all levels in their organization.
