As leaders we should be concerned with what is right, not being right. What a great world it would be if we were all more concerned with what is right than who is right. We spend a lot of time defending our position, arguing our viewpoint, and building our own individual case. Is our position always what is right? That seems doubtful. There are times we may be arguing for what is right, but often we are just concerned with being right. Sometimes we even know that we are not right, but we just cannot bring ourselves to admit that we are wrong. It should not be about being wrong; It should be about what is right. This is a tough one for many leaders. Oftentimes, leaders think they are supposed to be right and always have the answers.
Leadership is not about being focused on oneself and always being right. Leadership is about thinking about the big picture, and what the right answer is for the situation. Think about what is right, not being right.
