The Fast Lane

You’re driving on the highway, and of course you are running late to a meeting.  You move to the left lane to pass the cars that are not traveling as fast, and it never fails….there is a car driving slower than the speed limit in this lane. You wait, you flash your lights, you do everything you can to get the person’s attention.  Nothing works.

You become frustrated because they are inhibiting your progress.

This same analogy can be made with leaders.  We as leaders need to be mindful of our people’s needs and personal objectives.  If we are unaware or unwilling to assist them in achieving their goals, we will inhibit their progress…

We will become the slow car in the fast lane.

Always encourage your team to strive to be the best they can, as team members and as individual contributors.  Use your influence from previous experience and relationships established in order to move them into the direction of success.

So that you are the road and not the roadblock:

1.  Encourage people to develop their personal objectives.

2.  Understand these objectives

3.  Do your best to remove these obstacles and allow them to grow.

Have you been inhibited by a leader?  Have you held someone back?  What actions did you take in either circumstance?

Kontinue to Konker.
