If you’re a leader in any capacity, just remember. It IS important to listen to the opinion of one. If one single person is speaking up, it doesn’t mean that they’re wrong. It doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be listened to.
It means they were brave. Brave enough to speak up when no one else would, perhaps.
So if I’m that leader, and one single person is speaking up, whether they are right or wrong, have good ideas or bad, I’m going to at least listen. I would at least make them feel like their opinion matters.
Because an opinion of one who is brave and who isn’t afraid to make their opinion known, is a rarity. And is probably someone who has potential to be a very good leader too.
