You go to meetings. You process your inbox. You might make a presentation here and there. You certainly seem busy. But I bet if I asked your team what it is you do all day long, most of them would say, “I have no idea”. And come to think of it, do you know how exactly they spend every day?

In today’s new generation of tech company, leadership and responsibility is more distributed than ever before. People are expected to get the job done, without someone watching or directing every move all along the way. Teams are focused on results, not roles.

So as leaders in increasingly flat organizations without the traditional hierarchy and process of the past, how can we make sure we are still leading effectively? What’s the balance between too hands-on and too hands-off?

Your job as a leader is to let your team do what they’re good at, but you can only give over autonomy once you’ve given them the tools they need and trust that they can execute without you watching over their shoulder. The talk will cover strategies to help you build trust with your team and set up the right guard rails to loosen your grip on the steering wheel and give people what they want in a leader.

  • shvmdhwn Shivam Dhawan, Chief Strategist at Arbunize No comments? Surprising!
    This is the perfect start to the day and to the week...
    Your presentation is good and IMPACTING. I have some questions though... why do you say in slide 8 'The better you are, the less people know'?
    So success comes from leadership? teams? What about people who are individualistic? or the creative ones, artists? Players who were not the best leaders but the best inspiration.
    I believe, and respect that success means different to different people...
    Wonderfully compiled Kate. :)
