A senior leader's job isn't to have all the ideas or even most of them. Their job is to communicate corporate goals to associates and motivate them to achieve them. The same applies to any manager. This is a paradigm shift for many of us, requiring a level of trust in employee abilities.

Jack Welch, Former CEO of General Electric said it like this “I think any company that's trying to compete, has got to find a way to engage the mind of every single employee… If you're not thinking all the time about making every person more valuable, you don't have a chance.”

So it goes without saying, great leadership starts with communication.
