Leaders are problem solvers, and that means coming up with the right answers. The problem is that you may have nowhere to ask your own questions. Sometimes you just need a little feedback.
The longer we’re in leadership, the more we’re convinced that asking the right questions is far more important than always having an answer in your hip pocket.
That’s why we take time out once in awhile to let you ask the questions that are on your mind. That’s what this episode is about. Think of it as a Q&A with your virtual mentors! We’ll tackle some of your most persistent questions and offer the benefit of our experience.
