  1. Sounds to me like ‘delegation’ is the way to go. Delegation is all about working ‘smart’ as opposed to working ‘hard’. If you want my opinion of what real leadership is – especially in a business environment – leadership is not only about being consistent in your demonstration of what ‘good’ looks like, but it’s all about finding ways to further increase the return you are able to receive on what you are investing in your people while you are working together with them on a daily basis to get the job done on behalf of the customer or client. Leadership involves discovering new and more effective ways to create even greater opportunities for growth and success on the part of each one of your people, your team as a whole, your company, and also your customers. Leadership is all about you being in the driver’s seat when it comes to you ‘being’ and ‘doing’ whatever it takes to insure the success of anyone and everyone who has a vested interest in your organization’s success. Leadership is of no value unless it produces measurable results while developing people in the process – and that’s where the development of effective, growth-oriented delegation strategies come in to play!
