…doesn’t have to be the leader.
Now I don’t mean to say that the leader doesn’t need intelligence, or common sense, or some type of intellectual capacity. What I do mean to say is the leader doesn’t have to know more than everyone else. In fact, I also think the leader doesn’t always have to know HOW to do things better than everyone else in the room.
Here’s what I’ve learned: the leader doesn’t have to be the smartest person in the room if he or she has brought smart people onto the team and doesn’t let ego get in the way.
Do you really want the level of your team’s success to be dependent on your IQ?!?
