When things are not going as per plan the easiest thing to do is to gain control. To review everything. To approve everything. To become the system through which everything has to flow.
If this process worked in the new world, things would never go wrong.
How about doing exactly the opposite.
Things are not going as per plan, but I trust you to fix them. I am there should you need my help. And I happy to sit with you every now and then to act as the sounding board.
Let’s make it happen
Control a person
And they will slacken when you are not around
Give them the autonomy to take their own decisions
And they just might become you
