Ask good questions: Asking the correct questions leads to the answers you’re looking for. They can identify the vital factors and dynamically ask questions that lead to meaningful insights.
“How does this impact the business?”: They align their actions with organizations’ values & are constantly focused on identifying new channels that can impact business.
Trust people: Executives in C-level positions are only as good as the people they lead. They delegate work to the members of their team and trust them at every step.
