Three leadership styles

  1. DIY“I’ll do it myself – it’s quicker and easier”;
  2. Command & Control“we are doing it my way or the highway – and I want to see everything before it goes out.”
  3. Delegate & Mentor“let me show you how to do this, then guide you as you master it. Then I can let you get on with it.”

If there’s a problem with the team – the problem is you

Stephen Covey

I fix teams by creating better leaders.
