A leader I worked for always seemed to show up when we worked on a problem. Then, he’d stop us to bring him up to speed on the problem.

While he may sound helpful, his involvement often slowed us down and didn’t provide a viable solution.

After a while, we started taking problem-solving conversations into meeting rooms to prevent our manager from interfering.

Now, I don’t know the manager’s motive, but it seems that he attached his value to solving problems for us.

Don’t assume your help is needed or wanted. Instead, ask how you can help or if they want your help. And, if they turn you down, then leave them alone.

Leadership is about making others successful. Sometimes the best approach is to leave them alone. I’m willing to bet they’ll figure it out and make you proud.

You’ve got this.
