Clear The Path

As a leader you have a lot of responsibilities but one of the most important is that of clearing a path for people to do what they have been hired to do.

We are approaching that time of year in the Midwest where we will need the snowplow to clear the roads of snow so we can get around on the roads and streets.

The snowplow driver will clear the roads but they won’t hop out of the truck and then drive us through the path they have made.

They are just making it easier for us to go where we want to go. They often times anticipate the storm and are out before the storm even comes.

Think of leadership in the same way.

As leaders we should work to remove the big obstacles that may keep our people from being able to do what they are wanting to do. We clear the path and then let them do what they were hired to do and capable of doing.

Be out in front. Anticipate the storms, clear the path and then watch them go.

I’m cheering for you.
