Confidence in Appeal versus Ordering

Every team has a different culture. That culture is set by the team’s leadership. Leaders can demand and order the team around, but it takes a lot of confidence to appeal to teammates to decide in the best interests of the team without compulsion. There is a large difference in “having to do something” versus “choosing to do something”. The choice takes much less energy and builds trust that allows less oversight in the long run. Teammates feel they are on the same page when they can communicate about next steps without compulsion being a necessary component to implement those next steps.
