An honest answer

October 2, 2009

I always tell my partner, if every one is saying YES we are not doing any thing interesting, during challenging times.

Although this is also important when it comes to making crucial decisions. A leader’s success is heavily dependent on getting honest feedback from people around them. Don’t flex your “I’m-the-boss” muscles and neglect the opinions of others around you. Success is driven by the team – it is not an individual effort. You need help from people around you so don’t be so quick to brush them off because they differ in opinions. Get rid of your YES men/women and find some people who give you the straight up truth. When every one agrees, it creates a comfortable environment but nothing new is learned.

Quote of the day:

“The price of inaction is far higher than the cost of a mistake.”

Meg Whitman, President and CEO, eBay
