Lead and Let Lead

greg-raines-52175

Knowing more than someone else about a particular subject doesn’t mean it’s always a good idea for you to be the person in charge.

Sometimes people need expertise, but sometimes they just need the experts to give them a little room to experiment.

Sometimes people need efficiency, but sometimes they just need experience.

Sometimes people need to be led to their destination as smoothly as possible, but sometimes they just need to learn how to handle being in the driver’s seat even if that results in a bumpier ride.

Good leaders not only know how to guide, but they also know how to get out of the way.
