Next-Level Leaders

I have learned that a leader builds up their team, encouraging and supporting them so they can do their best work and use the expertise they were hired for. Giving the team the autonomy to make certain decisions, relying on their expertise, cultivates an atmosphere of ownership, investment, and fulfillment. People will thrive in that environment. Their drive and contribution will shrivel up if they are micromanaged and controlled, having no input and feeling devalued.
