Business owners and managers need to get out of the weeds and free up their time so they can focus on the opportunities that are approaching. Organizations need people who are willing and able to take on tasks and perform at an optimal level.
Leading by example is a style of management that is limited in its results. As owner or manager of a department, your job is to train your replacement. Each member of your team is your potential successor enabling you to grow in your career as you help them grow in theirs.
