Episode Show Notes

No matter how successful we are, every one of us has an area of our leadership where we’re not performing as well as we could. What’s worse is that we’re often blind to the extent of our own incompetence, and so we aren’t able to see opportunities for changing and improving how we lead. So, how can you ensure your blind spots are covered and get the kind of feedback and insight needed to make you a better leader? By leveraging the perspective of the outsider.

Join us as we learn from Pete Fisher (co-founder and CEO of Human Investing) and Jeff Pinneo (CEO Mentor with Building Champions) about why every leader needs the perspective of a trusted outsider.
