Leadership is not a one man or woman show. Neither is it a “march of the clones.” If we surround ourselves only with those who think and behave as we do, our management style will be flat and our teams will be one dimensional. It’s natural to feel comfortable around those who are just like us, but that natural inclination is a mark of immaturity in managers and executives (it also doesn’t speak well of us as human beings). To really create a dynamic team, look for a balance of skills and pay attention to the different strengths of your team members. Collaboration between varied skill sets can produce awesome results!
