Three reasons why not asking your boss for permission demonstrates you have finally arrived:
1. You didn’t ask because you figured it out for yourself. And it’s one less thing your boss needs to worry about.
2. You are so sure of yourself, you bet your career on it.
3. Worst case it’s reversible and it demonstrates your vision, courage, and judgement.
This is a joyful position to lead from.
All day. Everyday.
