Donald Gray has written a great and interesting article on Three Leadership Styles, based observations on managing traffic at an intersection. In the article the most successful leader is the one that sees people as “adults that most of the time they can take care of themselves, and that the role of a manager is to support these competent adults”. To be effective, the leader should not place themselves at the center of the management task so that they can be much more flexible and effective at the key management activities. A must read.
