We can learn to make time to reflect.
Here are three questions to get you started.
- Do our people know what’s expected of them? Make certain your people know their jobs and how they connect to the overall job of the organization. Be careful that when new assignments arise they are consistent with the mission.
- Do our people have the resources to do their jobs effectively? Manage resources including time judiciously. Find the right balance.
- Am I giving our people the support they need to carry out their jobs? The job of a leader is to point people in the right direction. Some need little of it; others may need too much.
Stepping away from time to time — either on vacation or a weekend — gives you a perspective necessary to leading with a clearer head and a more.
