100% An absolute critical step in driving change and gaining buy-in.

I so loved and appreciated this article. My former boss was a contender for CEO and I heard this exact phrase used to explain why she might not be the best fit. And I didn’t understand how people came to that conclusion. In my experience she demonstrated all the attributes you outline.

This is the first article I’ve read on Medium that is both well-written and a first hand story on management and leadership!

I hope to see more of your articles!!

I’m passionate about personal and professional leadership. I write about lessons learned from managing teams (and myself) for 20+ years.
