Takes a Strong Leader to Leave a Void

Posted on April 19, 2010. Filed under: interim management, Leadership | Tags: , |

Good leadership is leaving “white space” for your team. http://ow.ly/1Adlh . I like the graphic design metaphor used in the article.

In other words, be strong enough to leave room for team members to grow and step into challenges. Good leadership is not about you filling the gaps and sucking all the oxygen out of the room.  Being an “action manager” often means sitting back and inviting others to make things happen. This is sound advice for any executive whether on an interim assignment or a full-time gig.

  • About this Blog

    This blog is devoted to the topic of interim management for marketing functions within large and small corporations. Interim management as a staffing concept is well-understood and widely utilized in Europe. However, here in the colonies we are just beginning to open our eyes to the business benefits of being flexible and nimble when it comes to staffing senior-level marketers.
