As a leader, you need to be more essential and less involved

“Elevating your impact requires you to embrace an unavoidable leadership paradox: You need to be more essential and less involved. The two are not the same: your involvement is a mix of the opportunities, mandates, and choices you make regarding the work you do. How essential you are to the success of that portfolio depends on how decisively and wisely you activate those around you.

This means shaping the thoughts and ideas of others instead of dictating their plans, having a sought-after perspective but not being a required pass-through, and seeing your own priorities come to life through the inspired actions of others.”
