Three Keys to Leading High-Capacity People-Part 2
So what happens when a leader is placed at the helm of a team with high capacity leaders? Left unchecked, the natural sequence of events can take two roads; both are negative. Vacancy or mutiny; see last week’s post for the ugly details.
Here are three keys to keep high-level leaders at the table.
Give them plenty of freedom: High-capacity leaders need room to grow. Micromanaging will redirect their creativity elsewhere. Their energy will eventually find an outlet but your team won’t get the benefit.
Keep them focused: High-capacity Leaders are naturally drawn to the big picture. Keep their work focused on their area of responsibility. The amazing effects they produce will set a new standard for the entire team.
Ask them questions: Resist the temptation to give orders or overload high-capacity team members with tasks. Instead cast a big vision and ask them “how, who, what or when.” Remember these people not only take orders, they can give them. Provide the blueprint and let them build.
