When we talk about: “All good things take time”, we mean it for us as individuals.
Love, finances, family, individual success.
Almost every time we miss out on how good leadership is formed: by devoting a lot of time.
As an organisation scales, if it gets easy to manage people, then the leader is almost always doing it wrong. People are not data points, they are human beings that thrive on empathy and being heard.
Thus, a good leader will devote time to people and make it a point to engage with them. Caring doesn’t happen occasionally, it is bred in the culture of the organisation.
Delegation of leadership does not amount to leadership. Good leadership, like all good things, takes time and effort.
