Stop proving and start inviting.

As leaders we want to prove ourselves. We want others we're leading to know we're competent. We want them to believe we not only know where we're going, but how to get there. And we want to prove we're trustworthy.  But in our effort to prove we've "got it," we often end up alienating the people we're supposed to be leading.  You've got to figure out how to make more room at your table - at your leadership table.
