A key responsibility of a leader is knowing when NOT to lead.
A leader’s role is to motivate, set a direction, and get the team moving. Then, a good leader gets out of the way so that the people being led can take over and maintain the momentum.
The highest calling of a leader is developing other leaders. The person who feels they must lead everybody all the time isn’t a leader – that’s a maintenance manager (and one with a narrow view, at that!)
Have you experienced a good leader who helped you develop your leadership?
