Leadership requires balance. The leader is the one with ultimate responsibility, but is not in total control. In fact, if you think you can control your employees with a command and control style, you’re going to find that just doesn’t work with today’s employees.
On the other hand, a leader can’t be passive or too hands off. People want standards, guidance and well.. leadership.
In this series of posts we’ll explore some of the more delicate balances a leader has to manage. It’s only in a few circumstances that extreme styles are required. Most of what we do every day in business requires a balancing act. I hope you enjoy these topics! If you have other leadership balancing topics, please email them to me at [email protected]
