WHEN YOU POINT THE FINGER AT SOMEONE TO BLAME, THREE FINGERS ARE POINTING AT YOU!!! Many years ago I believed that to be a leader I needed to always be in the person’s ear and face.
Constantly watching them, always correcting them so they wouldn’t fail.
Correcting them because it wasn’t the way I would do it, organise it, plan it and also say it.
I did this in the hope of teaching them how to lead.
What I did was teach them how to follow and ask way too many questions to the point where they stopped thinking.
I learnt that lesson many years ago .
Today, I help, assist and support. Only when asked.
Let people create their own way, own style and learn from it .
If an error is made, correct it, move past it.
Since I changed me, what I have learnt and still learn amazes me.
Since I stopped believing I knew it all, I know I have become a better leader.
