Never go for the lowest common denominator

When you’re in a leadership position, the easy route is to find the lowest common denominator.

The decision that everyone agrees with.

That way lies failure.

You’re the boss.

Your job is not to win 100% consensus.

Your job is to lead the way.

To choose the path.

That almost always means taking a course that not everyone agrees with.

Never go for the lowest common denominator.
