You cannot do it by yourself. There’s no weakness in admitting that you need help. We can get so much more accomplished if we work together. As a leader, it is vital to utilize the skills and talents of your teams. Learn to task things out to members of your team and practice building a climate of trust. Motivate and empower your teams to reach their full potential so you can have peace and turn your attention to other tasks. I promise that you’ll be happy that you did.
Many times people in leadership positions attempt to accomplish organizational goals on their own. This is extremely difficult, frustrating, and ineffective. I was guilty of this in a role I held. I had the mindset that I’d do everything myself so that I could be sure everything was taken care of. Guess what? I was burning myself out and had to admit that I needed help. I had to learn to train, motivate, and trust my team. I also had to work on communicating with them more effectively. Once I did this, a huge weight was lifted and I actually wished I had done it sooner. Although I had been let down by a team in the past and had my guard up, that was not how my current team operated. I found them to be a wonderful group of people to work with. As I’ve developed in leadership roles, I’ve discovered the value of teamwork.
