Leadership Myth: Leaders Tell Others What to Do

Posted on


Many workers, especially younger ones today, don’t want to be told what to do. Give them a goal and a context in which to achieve it (like some shared values to guide their behavior), and turn them loose. Respect their autonomy; check in now and then; remove roadblocks; and coach them on some difficulties. But don’t tell them what to do.

Leaders elicit the greatness in others.
