As I get close to ramping up the first phase of the largest project I’ve ever been responsible for, I’ve learned a really good leadership principle.
Trust 60% of the decisions your employees make and you’ll only get 60% of their skills and experience.
There is a reason you have searched high and low, interviewed multiple candidates and eventually selected the team around you. As a manager you’re tasked with leading the team, but compromise in times of disagreement and use the collective talents of those around you.
Your projects, goals and work environment will showcase 100% of your team and you’ll be 40% more successful than if you tried to do everything by yourself.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
