While I was attending a Leadership Retreat (CTI) last week, we were asked to identify what we need to let go of, in order to become a better leader. For me, it was “letting go of the idea that people are idiots”. Of course, I don’t mean you, dear reader, it’s everyone else.
On October 11/12th, The BTN is hosting a conference on Excellence in Leadership: Becoming a High-Performance Organisation.
