It’s commonly accepted that the more senior you get in a business the less colleagues and staff in general tend to challenge you – and your thinking, your plans, your decisions and your actions.
So, is this true for you?
Honestly… how much real, constructive, stimulating, useful challenge do you get? From whom?… And just as important, how open to it are you?
Challenge and feedback to leaders are like earth and sunlight to plants – together they ground you in reality and enable you too to move and grow ‘towards the light’! Leaders with little of either, like plants, become pale, weakened versions of themselves, failing to reach their potential.
