I've been listening to this podcast and thinking how it applies to me. I find myself not sharing vital information with my fellow leaders and feel it may come from a desire to feed my ego. Would this fall under skillful politician? I'm happy to admit mistakes and am willing to take on feedback when someone suggests I could do something differently. I find my colleagues also have a lot of ego and are not willing to admit mistakes to each other. Clearly a lack of trustWould love to hear from you?

Managers don't get to know employees because it takes time, and it feels like it crosses a line that lowers the manager's authority.

I loved this... other than they didn't do every team. I would have listened for another 30 min for more teams.
