Leadership Tip of the Month: Get over it!
Threatened by people who are smarter than you? Get over it! Great leaders become even more successful when they build teams of true experts in their respective areas. What's more, smart people want to work for secure leaders who will give them room to grow and freedom to innovate.
So if the prospect of hiring someone who knows more than you do about a subject makes you feel vulnerable, push past it. Think of the long-term benefits to your organization -- and realize what a smart move it is to hire 10s.
