Questions and answers

As a leader, the surest way to have your team contribute is to speak when a question is needed and to shut up in the process of finding the answer.

The problem is that we often get this all wrong. And so direct reports ask questions and managers give answers, nurturing an organization that is bottlenecked, does not grow, and demotivates.

Leaders, be vulnerable and let go.
