Leaders get in trouble when treating things you can only influence as something you can control.
There is a difference between what we can influence and what we can control.
Make sure you have clarity on what you really control…so you don’t try to control that which you can only influence.
When a leader tries to control what he/she can only influence, the people they lead often experience them as several things on this list…
know it all
all about you
loves rules (and has a ton of them)
So ask yourself, “What do I have 100% control of in my program?” The list will probably be shorter than you think.
