Just for today, let’s use the word ‘strawberry’ to mean a solution, an answer, an idea, or a bit of advice.
If the object of our work is to come up with strawberries, we as leaders tend to jump in and give people strawberries. Strange as it may sound, people would rather we didn’t. It turns out that it is far better to help them discover how to produce strawberries on their own. This relieves us of the burden and they’d much, much rather do it themselves anyway.
In your corner,
PS: Why strawberries? I like them better than fish.
