I worked for a leader who became impatient when, in his opinion, the team wasn’t improving fast enough. When this happened, he’d start directing the team and telling them what to change. The problem was that his frustration was leaking out, leaving the team feeling unsafe.

There’s a proverb that says, “patience is a virtue.” It’s the ability to wait for something without frustration, which is a useful skill and a good aspect of one’s leadership.

The pace of change in teams is unpredictable as you never know what might impact a change. Exercise your patience when things aren’t changing as fast as you’d prefer. Remind yourself that everyone is doing their best.

With a little patience, you and the team will have the space to see what might be in your way.

You’ve got this.
