Leaders...ask yourself these questions

Seth Godin continues to be creative, innovative, and always worth listening; a marketing guru who wears many hats well.   A recent post was on questions for leaders. I have adapted these for the world of those leading complex programs, projects, and initiatives.

  1. Do you let the facts get in the way of a good story?
  2. How do you work with people who disagree with you... do you call them names in order to shut them down?
  3. Are you open to multiple points of view or do you demand compliance and uniformity? 
  4. Are you willing to walk away from a project, customer, or employee who has values that don't match yours?
  5. Can you let someone else get the credit?
  6. How often are you able to change your position?
  7. Do you have a goal(s) that can be reached in multiple ways?
  8. If someone else can get your team there faster, are you willing to let them?
