A good leader will get to know his subordinates personalities and allow them to participate. This gives them ownership in whatever project they are doing.

Hi Don
Sometimes a good leader knows when to get out of the way of really great staff and support them so they can work productively and creatively. And when there is a really effective employee that person may be able to coach others in those particular skills. We also believe that ownership is important to get a project done well. And Teamwork. Thanks for your comments, Susan

Different personality types require different styles of coaching. As with helping students, it's a great experience when people are already motivated to learn and grow. I think a major "don't" as a leader is "don't micromanage." How anyone has time for that is a mystery to me.

Interesting points about the level of management. We think it depends on each person. Some people need a bit more help to be able to manage themselves. Others can function with the briefest of instruction. As managers we have to determine if our efforts with a person will likely yield results and then determine the level of coaching needed. Thanks, Susan
