What do we want from our leaders?

I would argue that the precedent question is about what we want from our teams. As this becomes obvious, so does expectations of our leaders. 

  • Do we want teams to act with agency, taking initiative to be proactive and responsive? 
  • Do we want teams to have to wait for anything from their leaders, like permissions or information?
  • Do we want teams to organize and coordinate their own work flows? 
  • Do we want teams working from their own collaboratively crafted agreements! 

The answers to each shapes exactly what value leaders can be prepared and positioned to deliver.
