What makes a good leader?

As an effective leader, it’s not your job to worry about the detail of getting a job done, or to devise ways of monitoring day-to-day activities and dealing with crises along the way.

Instead, you must look to the ‘big picture’; concerning yourself not so much with day-to-day operations, but with where the company is going and where the next big opportunities are coming from.

Ensure your staff understand the big picture: they’ll then have the information they need to stay on track and you’ll find it easier to direct their efforts without getting fixed on the detail.

Have you got stuck in too much detail?
