What was your biggest leadership mistake?
An early leadership mistake is you want to make a difference. You really want people to know that you got promoted or you got the job because you know what you're doing. When in fact, most people know that. You got promoted because of skill or attitude/ aptitude seen in you or experience; some of it's technical. I tried to prove myself too fast, and I should have proved myself through my actions, not necessarily what I said but what I did.
