“If you are choosing to be in leadership today, you should be disproportionately focused on creating leaders, for that’s how you amplify your impact and contribution,” Harris says.

Harris also speaks about innovation as the dominant competitive parameter in today’s market — and makes a vital point:

“If you want to make sure your team is hyper-focused on innovation, as they should be, then you must teach them how to fail. If they are deathly afraid of failing, then they will never reach far enough to truly innovate.”

Moving on, Harris touches on how leaders can ensure they create an inclusive environment. She acknowledges the fact that this is often perceived as a challenging task but notes that it’s as easy as soliciting other peoples’ voices.

Harris’ final point is about voice and courage. In this vein, the Wall St veteran says leaders must be willing to speak up and listen to others.
