There’s a fine line between guiding someone in the direction they want to go, and forcing them to go to the destination you’ve chosen, says Anthony Guerra. And a leader must be able to make that distinction.
When we keep people at arm’s length, it’s easy to find things we don’t like. But when we’re brave enough to get closer, we often find quite the opposite, says Anthony Guerra.
There are two basic rules all leaders should follow, says Anthony Guerra: give your staff the flexibility and freedom to get the job done, and don’t lead from behind.
Reading books is a great way to learn about leadership, but an even better way is to study firsthand how a quality organization – and a struggling organization – are run, says Anthony Guerra.
As a leader, you can’t handle every situation – and you shouldn’t, says Anthony Guerra, who believes sometimes problems are best solved when it’s someone else who steps up.
