Sure, leaders are steady and dependable. But they also know the power of doing surprising things when their gut tells them to.

Some unexpected actions that yield results:
  • Giving a high-stakes assignment to someone who is, as yet, untried.

  • Approving a promising idea on the spot.

  • Admitting that someone else’s idea is better than yours.

  • Speaking openly about your personal frustration with a problem that needs to be addressed.

  • Admitting that the competition is doing better than you are in a key area.

  • Acknowledging that you’ve grown stale in certain activities and turning over responsibility for them to someone else.
