#2209 – Leadership Ingredient: Knowledge

YouTube player


The 3rd leadership ingredient is knowledge. Leaders today face unprecedented challenges with knowledge. We’re smothered with data, numbers, intel and other forms of “knowledge.” But we’re also challenged with reality and truth. Welcome to the world of deep fakes – some intentional and much of it likely unintentional. We see data and connect dots. What if the dots don’t connect? Or shouldn’t be connected? 

Knowledge must be vetted. Leaders can verify knowledge – facts, data, etc. One of the best methods for doing that is to rely on others. Humility affords us the opportunity to practice curiosity (asking questions) as we pursue the insights and knowledge of others. 

Perspective matters. That’s why great leaders rely on the perspectives other people can provide to vet knowledge. 

Be well. Do good. Grow great!
