Get Out of the Way

Just because you are leading or managing a team does not mean you need to have your nose in everyone’s business all the time. Process and management techniques should not be invasive to or stand in the way of your team. You are responsible for providing your people with all the tools they need to succeed and getting out of the way. The less you are involved and the better your team performs means you’re doing a good job. Implement processes that take everyone as little time as possible. Wind up the clock and let it run on its own.
