“Leadership is getting people to believe in something they can’t see.” - Lonnie Mayne
A leader must know how to follow.
While this might sound counterintuitive, it is the secret to success. When the person at the top entrusts those below him/her to make the right decisions, the collective whole feels empowered to do their best work.
But many companies today don’t follow this recipe. They infuse fear into the company culture as a cheap way to make people do their work. While the tasks may be getting accomplished, this compression actually stunts innovation.
