As a CEO, business owner or leader, it's hard to know who you can talk to.
Everyone in our work and home life has a perspective and interest in us.
They also have their own agendas, motivations and intentions.
Who do you have that is truly an outsider? Who will ask you the tough questions? Who challenges you, stands up to you and makes you uncomfortable ? Who is committed to growing you and your business?
"Powerful questions knock people out of autopilot
and make them fly the plane." Laura Whitworth
My job, as a Vistage Chair and executive coach, is to help others see what they are not. I do this by asking the questions no one else will. The 50 plus leaders I work with know I am not afraid to dig deep and drill in on the tough issues. This may explain why the collective growth of my member companies exceeded 18% year over year in 2015.
So who do you talk to?
