So many books, blog posts and articles have been written about leadership, internal culture and build the team you need for your business. I’ve been thinking about it for years, writing about it and trying to implement many of my findings in my own venture. It’s also very easy to talk about, debate with others and waste your time on it.
My kid has a busy schedule. She has to get up early in the morning to be in school on time, spend all day in school and then go to bed early evening. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for creating things, finding time to think and just be a kid. Over the last few months, she carved out time during the day to just create and think.
After breakfast, she demands half an hour just to play, create things and think. Same happens before she goes to bed.
Maybe it’s that easy:
Give your team the time and space to think and create.
When you look around at your business, is everybody just busy all the time? Does the busy work stifle thinking? How much better would your company perform if you actually give them the freedom to think things through and create based on their thinking?
You just won’t attract the best builders in a command and control environment.
Set them free.
