Empowering your team to take ownership of their work is crucial to effective leadership. However, some leaders tend to micromanage their team by monitoring every email and interaction, even for trivial tasks such as getting a glass of water. This approach is counterproductive and does more harm to the company culture to the point where it can erode everyone's inspiration and motivation.
No one can build and sustain a great company if no trust exists. So it makes no sense to recruit the best people and tie their hands by not giving them the freedom to perform. Great leaders know that the soul of their business is their team, and they must allow and trust their team to produce their very best work; that's why you recruited them in the first place.
So, if you want to be a leader, give your team the space to work, create an environment free from the impediments of toxicity and witness significant growth in your company but, more importantly, in your team.
