Truth be told, when you are still developing confidence in yourself and your leadership style and skillset, you probably prefer to spend your time with people who share your views.
And why not. It feels good to be in the company of people who understand and appreciate you for who you are today.
At some point, though, you have to recognize the value of those people in your life that beg to differ. Those who’s views take you outside the familiar, who challenge your comfort zone and your grasping to a particular status quo.
Though they may not appear as friends, these people expand your mind, expose your neurosis and hidden agendas, liberate you from the shadows in your perception and the stinginess in your willingness to feel. And by doing so they invest in who you will become.
Because as you ripen as a leader, you will see that your ability to connect with and understand people is by far the most important ingredient in your success.
Remember then, that not all good friends appear as such.
