Do you as a leader give people the opportunity to succeed?
I’ve been thinking about some leadership wisdom that I read yesterday. It’s from Shane Duffey over at the What Leadership Demands blog. His recent post titled How Bad Do You Want It is about being aware of your effect on others.
I suggest you go read the post, then come back.
I struggle to prepare effectively. No matter how great my idea is, it may be a flop because I didn’t get others enough time to implement it properly. I may be causing great discomfort and stress when I procrastinate on a decision.
When I don’t give others the opportunity to succeed, I demotivate them. That’s bad.
