A painful part of opening my eyes has been this…..
Having and sharing lots of opinions does not equate to leadership.
I thought having lots of opinions meant I was a leader.
I thought being a leader meant I had to state lots of opinions.
My apologies to many people I worked with in my 20’s 🙂
It is an easy trap to fall into. Wanting to flex opinion and believing you are leading by doing so.
Off-course people have a right to their opinions, and that’s okay. Having opinions does not equate to leading.
Leaders may have opinions, but having opinions does not mean you are a leader.
Sometimes it’s okay to say I don’t have an opinion on something, and still be a leader.
