I do not know

When you let go of things you are not good at, you find the space and energy to double down on your strengths. And, equally importantly, you leave the space to others in your team to do the same.

For leaders, this is particularly crucial. We tend to think we should know it all and do it all, that if we are not going to do something is just because we really do not have time. And all that translates, day after day, into a demotivated team, poor deliveries and many chocked processes.

Not knowing is ok.

Say it out loud: “I do not know”.

It is the only possible step towards building a team that can deliver the change you are seeking.
