“Leadership isn’t making all the decisions. It is making sure the right decisions are made.”
Sometimes the best decision a leader makes is to ask the right questions. When this is done effectively it puts the leadership focus on making the right decision, not on the decision maker themself.
I will fully admit that this is much easier said than done. Knowing when to ask the right questions and when to be the decision maker is a delicate balance that comes through experience and trial and error. But when it is done correctly it creates leadership growth both in the decision makers and those that they lead.
Invest your effort into asking the questions that drive towards making the right decisions. It creates a double win. The right decisions are made, and so are more leaders…
