I once worked for a leader who was full of ideas. He was a bit of an idea machine. However, the problem is how he’d stay involved with every idea as the team tried to do something with it. If you tried to improve or alter his idea, he’d pull you back to his original idea.

With time, the team became weary of his ideas. When he came up with an idea, we’d merely follow his directions. It became rare that anyone would try to improve things themselves.

The next time you give the team an idea, stand back and see what they do with it. The team are the experts in how they do their work, so let them nurture, improve, and implement the idea.

People who feel a sense of ownership are far more likely to be passionate about an idea.

You’ve got this.
