You must empower them.
You need to engage them.
You have to hold them accountable.
You must assess them.
You need to communicate to them.
You have to tell them what you’re going to tell them, tell them, then tell them what you told them.
You have to give them feedback.
You have to motivate them.
Sounds like a lot of work, doesn’t it?
Would-be leaders everywhere are being taught they have to do things to those they lead. (No wonder there aren’t enough hours in a day.) The approach wreaks of the insult.
Those we must influence already have brilliance within. Rather than labor to do things to them, we change everything when we activate what already exists.
