One of the biggest revelations for entrepreneurs is that moment when you realize leadership doesn’t mean telling other people what to do, or even how to do it. Instead, your biggest responsibility is to give them a vision of where you want to go.
This works on so many levels. For you, personally, it’s probably a natural reflex to see how things are and imagine how they could be bigger, better, different. And in your work with others, you don’t need to worry about “managing” them; simply share your vision and the big-picture context, then give them the freedom and authority to use their talents and imagination. They’ll find ways to make achieving your goal possible that you’d never have dreamed of.
