Everyone is busy chasing success. Leaders often want things to go well so that they’re seen as successful. The problem is that they often and unintentionally sabotage the chance for success.
The problem starts when things start feeling like things are going wrong. Their anxiety is rising, and people start trying to keep things on track. That’s when some leaders step in and try to rescue the team. When this happens, people often don’t know how to move forward.
If you want to succeed, focus on making people successful. Trust them to know how to get things done. Ask power questions to help them see things for what they are. Help them to understand and know the impact their efforts are having.
When the people you lead are successful, so are you.
You’ve got this.
