This month’s leadership quote: “Those who failed to oppose me… who readily agreed with me and accepted all my views…were those who did me the most injury.” -Napoleon Bonaparte
As leaders, how do we avoid the trap of responding only to those who agree with us?
- What do we do each day to encourage our employees to tell us what they really think?
- Are we able to hear feedback from those who disagree and not brand it as “not being a team player”?
- What forums do we have to solicit input from our employees who are “on the line”?
- What actions have we taken lately that demonstrate we heard and listened to opposing views?
