So many leaders in organisations today are just glorified controllers. They don’t lead people they control people. They get people to do what they want through control.
True leaders inspire. True leaders attract people who want to follow. They have no need to control. They respect and gather people who want to be part of the vision they are building.
Which are you? Do you control people through unnecessary regulations and rules to get them to comply or do you provide a compelling journey that people want to follow you on and commit to?
Leaders inspire commitment over mere compliance. Commitment needs less effort and management because people want to do the job. Compliance is expensive and exhausting because it constantly requires time, energy.
Lead. Don’t control. It’s better for everyone.
