Addicted to Details: Getting Leaders and Executives to Just Let Go

Addicted to Details: Getting Leaders and Executives to Just Let Go:



 "Last week I wrote about the sometimes hidden costs of a leader asking a question, and the danger of not recognizing the risk and expense it can cause.

Another lurking cost I see is what happens when they are unwilling to let go of detail.

Leaders who not only personally require a deep level of detail, but also require that everyone in the management chain understands and processes a deep level of detail, are paralyzing and de-motivating their organization.

And in reality, they are introducing more risk than they are “catching” by being personally savvy in the detail – and demanding that of all their managers are too."
