We all like to think we are leading the way for our teams (whether at home or at the office), but how do we know we aren’t only in the way? Ask yourself these questions.
If I weren’t here, would this meeting/event still happen? It needs to provide value for all attendees, not just you.
Do I know everything happening on my team? Do you micro-manage or just provide vision and empowerment? Your expectations should be communicated so that you are pleasantly surprised, but never stunned.
Do I know what frustrates my team? If you do not know, it may be you!
Now, get out of the way.
