Leadership – Pure and Simple

Whether you lead a billion dollar company or a small department, your primary accountability is to leverage the talent of your people to get results.  That is the opposite of control.  If you want to get the most from your people, give them a clear vision of where you’re headed, challenge them with high expectations, give them feedback on how they can improve performance (vs what they didn’t do well,) remove performance roadblocks they identify, and recognize them for their achievements.  It’s not rocket science.
