The best leaders surround themselves with people who are smarter than they are. They understand the goal of a quality leader is to recruit and hire so well that the leader themselves probably wouldn’t make the cut.
It takes a special leader to be this vulnerable. But it actually makes you less exposed. It takes an exceptional leader to orchestrate the talents of a team made up of smart, driven people. The team will need your wisdom more than ever as you galvanize their best traits and skills into a unison ready to tackle new challenges.
When you are the dumbest person on your team, the team is ready to reach new heights thanks to your leadership.
