161 How to get out of your own way

We all turn to trusted colleagues or friends for advice, but sometimes we want real advice, not just to be told how brilliant we are. When you find those colleagues it’s their advice that will push you to being a better leader and help you go in the right direction.

Today I’m talking about how you don’t have to do everything by yourself, asking for and getting help can make you a stronger leader. Asking for advice can steer you in the right direction of people or of tools and resources. I also share how it’s important to understand what your organisation, business or team requires of you now. The leader you needed to be five years ago will be different to the leader you need to be right here and now. I talk about asking ourselves what is needed for us to be the leader we want to be - now.

This week on The Business of Healthcare:

  • The importance of real advice from friends and colleagues.
  • Why you don’t have to do everything by yourself.
  • Other people can help you see the things you can’t.
  • How advice can steer you in the right direction.
  • The importance of using the expertise around you.
  • Why you should ask yourself what the business requires of you.
  • The importance of being the leader you need to be now.
