If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else. —Booker T. Washington
On Today’s Episode:
- Carla and I talk about co-leadership
- Having the self-awareness to accept that you have weaknesses
- How I got smart and asked Carla to co-lead with me
- Making the organization better through co-leadership
It can be daunting at first; co-leadership for some feels like an admission of weakness. Some will let their resolve falter because they let fear wear them down with questions like “What if the co-leader outshines me and undermines me?” But the truth is that having a co-leader who has strengths that fill in your weaknesses will make you smarter, better, faster, stronger. Today’s podcast dives deep on what it looks like and how I made the transition with Carla.

Question: Is there an opportunity for you to explore co-leadership? Why or why not?
