GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY

by Nimia Acebes on November 8, 2014

Though leaders cannot be expected to have all of the answers – they should not play at arms-length either. – Glenn Llopis


Some leaders are over-delegating.  They entrust all the works to their employees and make them responsible for the ways to do them and make them accountable for the results.

Over-delegating will destroy trust of the employees to their leader. It will give the employees the impression that their leader does not know what is required to have the job done.

The leader must not only be high-tech but most of all, he must be high-touch. Although, he gets things done through people, he must always be at hand to evaluate the business, counsel and coach his employees.

I would be very glad if you could also share your ideas by giving your comments below.

Your friend,
