You need to reflect on your legacy. Who do you want to be remembered as? What is a defining feature of your identity?
There will be instances when you will be hoping that something will work, without being able to convincingly explain to yourself how it will work. That is when a little bell should go off. Ask yourself: What’s the problem I need to solve? Does this solution make sense? If I’m feeling some doubt, why? Am I doing this for sound reasons, or am I motivated by something personal?
You have to convey your priorities clearly, and repeatedly. That is what separates great managers from the rest. If leaders don’t articulate their priorities clearly, then people around them don’t know what their priorities should be.
Good leadership isn’t about being indispensable. It’s about helping others be prepared to possibly step into your shoes, giving them access to your own decision making, identifying the skills they need to develop and helping them improve, and being honest with them about why they’re not ready for the next step.
If you want innovation, you need to give permission to fail.
