Something Need to Change Around Here

  • Oct 14, 2011
We commonly assume that the best leaders are the go-to people. Give them a problem and they will solve it. However, once these individuals are promoted they often find themselves overwhelmed. After all, they are the go-to person so everyone naturally comes to them with issues and problems.

Something Need to Change Around Here tells us that what got us the promotion isn't necessarily going to help us in leadership. In fact, micromanaging is probably going to hinder. There's simply not enough time in the day to do your work and everyone else's as well.

The solution is training people to do their job and letting them do it. Create the systems, then allow leaders at each level to grow in their own leadership ability. Recognizing leadership and managerial skills and making sure that leaders are being trained up through the system.

Perhaps what is most unique about this approach is that at each level we are creating leadership for a sustainable business. We are always looking for certain qualities, teaching, and moving on to the next stage of leadership. In essence, finding our own replacement (and the one following that) so that business runs smoothly even if a current leader should be promoted, retire, or just move on.
