Look in the mirror: Are you the leader you always wanted to be? Would you want to work for you?
As you started your career, chances are you weren’t in a leadership position right away. You most likely had bosses and managers, and you probably thought to yourself, “If I was the boss, here’s how I would do things.”
Now’s the time to gut-check yourself. Are you the leader you envisioned yourself being? Are you giving orders or building relationships?
If you’re focused solely on driving numbers, you’re selling yourself short.
