"Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice" - Proverbs 13:10.

When leaders think they know or can do it all, they are being proud, and pride in a relationship or an organization eventually leads to some sort of strife. What's more, leaders often explore territory in their organization that others have not considered, so there are many opinions about and options for what they should or should not do. Wise leaders seek counsel not only about their business but also about their leadership style and personality traits. This is referred to as coaching, and smart leaders regularly call upon or meet with people they trust to get advice and direction concerning their responsibilities and their personal growth and development.

LEADERSHIP STEP: Where is the greatest point of tension in your organization? Today, assume you are part of the problemwhether that's the case or notand identify someone in your company, field, or region (or someone online) who can give you input around your area of need: budgeting, staffing, production, decision making, or team building. The only antidote for pride is humility so you're going to humble yourself and seek advice, perhaps from multiple sources, to help correct the problem.
