In this great podcast on the learning leader show, the former President of Iams, a $1B organization talks about why as a corporate leader it was crucial to surround himself with a board of directors who could compliment his strengths. Even more important is his recommendation to have your own personal board of directors.
As I grew in my profession I learned to surround myself with a smart group of people who could help me fill in my gaps. I started with a business coach, added a personal trainer, took on an athletic therapist, nutritionist and asked the CEO of one of my customers if I could grab coffee with him once a quarter.
I have a monthly meeting with some ex Salesforce leaders and find different ways to stay connected to people who compliment me.
Highly recommend this great podcast.
