“If only my people would just do what I ask!” I’ve heard too many leaders utter those words and then, in their frustration, implement solutions that don’t seem to make things better. Maybe leaders can sharpen their approach with a simple shift in the question they ask themselves.

This week’s question:

Do you want team members to be compliant, to defer to you? Or, do you want them to be supportive of you and each other, to engage together in achieving a shared objective? Now, with that in mind, how will you work with them to assign tasks, monitor activities and measure outcomes?
