I was talking to a senior Western business leader the other day, and he said that he is a free thinker who can always find a better way. So he always hires people who are action oriented. That way, something gets done while he tinkers with the future.
All good leaders do this all the time. We marry and hire to balance ourselves. At least we should. Lets do this well.
We need people different than we are but on the same page. We need alignment without handcuffs, but alignment is needed. These people are worth finding. and coaching. They add to our strength. Let’s go the extra mile to hire these people and coach and empower them.They make us uncomfortable because their style is so different, and they argue with us, but we need them.
What do you think?
