Leaders are often looked to as experts. But they’re not. The strongest leaders surround themselves with experts, which means, you don’t know the answer a lot of the time.
When leaders feel like they should know, they miss the opportunity to invite their team to step into their strengths, rally around you, draw out their skills and talents to solve the problem in ways you couldn’t imagine.
This is what vulnerability looks like practically, at the highest levels of leadership.
This is what we discussed with Alex Badenoch, Telstra’s former Group Executive – Transformation, Communication and People on our Leading Generous Teams podcast this week.
Known for her change management skills and ability to deliver strong commercial outcomes across various executive positions, Alex has designed and implemented key initiatives to drive successful change across multiple organisations.
