“Young leaders focus on themselves too much. They mistakenly believe success depends on them rather than others. They think about their own potential and neglect the potential of others.
Small dreams are reached alone.
Great dreams require others.
Young leaders limit themselves by sinking into themselves. Shifting from success to significance makes great dreams possible.
Other mistakes young leaders make:
- Reluctance to lead. (Frequently a belief issue)
- Assuming dissent is resistance.
- Making impulsive decisions without doing their homework.
- Hiding ignorance.
- Not asking.
- Being arrogant.
- Assuming collaboration just happens.
- Acting independently.
