"It's lonely at the top." This is an often heard complaint from leaders. However, not every leader experiences this. In fact, the best and healthiest leaders regularly take trips down off the 'top of the mountain' to check in with those impacted by their leadership. This input can forge loyalty. More importantly, it helps a leader monitor their own growth and impact. It allows the leader to grow and course correct in response to reality - not assumptions. In every other aspect of our work - we probably value good and accurate information for decision making. Invest in quality feedback about your own impact as a leader.
