[036] Why Disagreeing Makes You Look Like a Leader
Oct 19, 2020 Season 1 Episode 36
Kara Ronin

What are the benefits of disagreeing? Why do you need to disagree as a leader? Many people avoid disagreeing. It can be daunting, especially if you’re disagreeing with somebody more powerful than you. However, in leadership, it’s critical that you develop the skill to disagree when you need to and want to. 

Holding back from disagreeing can lead to many negative repercussions in leadership. The main one being, you can let bad ideas stay in the conversation, driving your team’s growth in the wrong direction, which in turn, damages your reputation as a leader.

In this episode, I share my thoughts on why it can be hard to disagree and then I continue on with three reasons as to why you should disagree when you’re a leader.

In “Why Disagreeing Makes You Look Like a Leader”, you will learn:

  • Why disagreeing with family and friends is easier than with your coworkers.
  • Fears that could be holding you back from disagreeing.
  • Why you can’t be a people-pleaser and agree 100% of the time.
  • Why disagreeing makes you look like a leader.
  • How disagreeing makes you look more honest and authentic.
  • Why disagreeing helps you become more visible in the office.
  • Details about next week’s episode on how to disagree.
