I like to have control of things.
I plan. I manage. I organize. I recommend.
I struggle letting go.
Some leaders need to be more engaged.
But some leaders need to let go.
Delegate. Trust. Release. Realize that one person can’t do everything. It’s not that the leader trying to manage it all does it poorly (which inevitably happens when trying to control it all). It’s that one person literally can not do it all. Things don’t get done. People are let down. Expectations fall flat.
Leading may just mean letting go.
Turning it over.
Releasing it to someone else to free you up for the next opportunity, challenge, possibility, adventure.
What are you holding on to today that’s holding you back?
