Don’t you hate it when you drive behind someone on an on-ramp who is tentative and afraid to pick up enough speed to join prevailing traffic. I don’t know what causes drivers to behave timidly but there’s always some excuse; sometimes it may be outside voices in their ear. I do know some leaders who hold their key employees back from running at full speed.
What’s in the way of your people reaching travelling velocity? Is it their equipment, their ability, their confidence? Is it YOU….your confidence, your risk tolerance, your inability to let go; are you the excuse? What will you do to ensure your key people get up to speed before the on ramp runs out?
