It is the belief that a team can achieve more than a single person.
It is the realization that you don’t have to do everything by yourself, be the best at everything yourself, or even know how to do everything yourself.
Your job, as a manager, is to get better outcomes from a group of people working together.
The sooner you internalize that you own the outcomes of your team, and the decisions made within it, the easier it becomes to have hard conversations.
At higher levels of management, success becomes more and more about mastering a few key skills: hiring exceptional leaders, building self-reliant teams, establishing a clear vision, and communicating well.
Your job is about :
- Identifying and communicating what matters
- Hiring top talent
- Resolving conflicts within your team
