Do you know the phrase “Less is more?” Do you ever think about how important these three words are to your leadership effectiveness?
Your job as a leader is to help others succeed. I can’t think a better to help them succeed, then to get out of their way.
Try this little trick the next time you’re going to say something: W.A.I.T. Yes, start by pausing. Then ask yourself, “Why Am I Talking?”
WAIT will make leading a little easier. You might also be surprised by how much you hear when you are not talking.
You’ve got this.
