    By Bill Snyder (@BSnyderSF via @StanfordGSB), Stanford Business

    As a C-suite executive, you might think you always have to have the answers, but thinking that way can be a mistake. H. Irving Grousbeck, an adjunct professor of management at Stanford Graduate School of Business and the cofounder of Continental Cablevision, explains why.

    If you’re a top-level business manager, admitting that you don’t know something can be difficult. After all, anyone who has clambered to the top of the corporate food chain is expected to exude certainty and self-confidence. In short, you’re supposed to be the person with all the answers...”
