By getting an overall view of the bigger picture while maintain leader's own role within the picture is positive goal for the team. And leaders could also be improved by receiving feedback from different angles and persons improve their leadership.

Analysis: The most effective leaders should have high levels of self- reflection and self- awareness. And they should have the ability to stand out and get a higher level view of the situations. As leaders try to see the "big picture" of the organization, and improve their leadership by receive feedback from others are extremely important to operate the organization well.
