Episode 1: Allowing yourself to be led

One of the fundamental traits of a successful leader is his, or her capacity to be led.
If you look back in history at any prominent leader, you’ll see that they all had mentors, guides, coaches, consultants, counsels, confidants, whatever.

As business owners, it’s very common to be the one that comes up with all the ideas and executes all of the strategies, however having an outsiders neutral perspective on what you’re planning to do can often be the difference in hit, or miss. As Peter once told me, “Leadership is the ability to look the truth head on”.

In this episode, Peter talks about the importance of allowing yourself to be led and how you can become more teachable. Chances are if you’re listening to this podcast, then you are teachable, so I trust you’ll get a lot out of this episode.
