Leadership 

Stay out of the details.

If you have the 50,000-ft view of 10 different problems, it's best to stay at that level rather than going into the minutiae. 

Great leadership is surrounding yourself with those who understand the details and letting them work.

Leadership

Wrong jungle.

“The leader is the one who climbs the tallest tree, surveys the entire situation, and yells, ‘Wrong jungle!’.

Busy, efficient producers and managers often respond ... 'Shut up! We’re making progress!’.”

— Stephen Covey

Leadership

A team is only as good as their tools.

Whether you’re in the right jungle or not - if the managers and producers don’t have sharp machetes, progress is hard to make.

The highest leverage thing any leader can do is to give their teams the right tools that empower their success.
