Sally Smith, CEO of the popular Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant chain, was asked, “What are some things you’ve learned about leading people?”
I’m always seeking feedback. My leadership team does a performance review on me each year for the board. It’s anonymous. They can talk about my management style or things I need to work on. If you want to continue growing, you have to be willing to say, “What do I need to get better at?” That’s how I learn. That’s how I get better.
