I used to think leadership meant I needed to evaluate how people were doing and correct them. This approach to leadership didn’t work out too well for me.
It’s exhausting to think you have to be the one with all the answers. It also means when things go wrong – it’s on you.
We, humans, are wired to evaluate. It’s in our nature. That doesn’t mean you have to let evaluation define your leadership.
Your leadership is far more powerful when you use observations rather than evaluations. When something seems off, have a conversation with your team about what you’ve observed. Leave out your judgment or interpretation.
I think you’ll find the outcome far more powerful and easier than trying to have all the answers yourself.
You’ve got this.
