Leadership isn’t telling people what to do. Leaders who believe otherwise are always spotted when they insist on micromanaging their team. Empowering leaders empower methods outside their own. Leadership also isn’t telling people what they did wrong. Some leaders struggle with the “not doing” and they focus on communicating how they would have done things differently. These leaders are spotted when they point out ridiculous things to their teammates because they think it’s their job to do so. Empowering leaders leave well enough alone.
