To grow the revenue, outcomes, impact, and relevance of our organizations, we as leaders must get out of the weeds. Wherever we are doing or managing the work, we are creating serious limits to our growth. To the extent we focus on leading, we will grow.
Leading means hiring the best people, stewarding the SweetSpot of the organization, constantly showing people how they contribute to the overall goals and SweetSpot, and building the capacity of the organization through systems, rhythms, norms, and culture.
If, in the last 24 hours, you corrected someone’s work, came up with a better idea, overrode a decision, or did work that another could and should do, then you have been in the weeds. What can you do today to become the kind of person who builds the environment where others can succeed at doing and managing the work?
