Leading

Leadership Is Not (Really) About Getting Stuff Done

hands in

Getting angry, pushing, directing, pleading, blaming, or doing the tasks ourselves are sure signs that we have fallen into into the trap of thinking that our job as leaders is to make others get stuff done.

Our job is to build an environment for others to get stuff done. We want the team to take charge, select the best stuff to do, then get it done together, well, and on time. And so we use tools like vision and goals, coaching and encouragement, just the right amount of structure, listening, team building, team process, and the hiring of smart, driven, and nice people.

 

In your corner,

Mike
