Leaders: Stop Requiring Your Personal Approval For Everything

Leaders: Do you trust your team? I’m amazed at the number of projects, presentations, initiatives and other aspects of business and ministry that the top leader requires their personal approval on before the team can move forward. I understand that need in the beginning. Perhaps you’re launching a new social media campaign, podcast, product, logo, or building design. You want to make sure it gets off on the right foot, so there’s no problem with your close involvement at that initial stage.

But after that, I see leaders demanding their personal approval on every social media post, podcast episode, product update or iteration, or new development.

The point is, if you’re taking the time to oversee or approve all of these things your subordinates should be doing, you’re not spending the time doing what you should be doing.

Did you hire the right people or not? If the answer is yes, then let them take the initiative and do their job. 

If you didn’t hire the right people, then why not? And why aren’t you beating the bushes for the right person for that role?

If you have the right team in place, you don’t need to duplicate their work.

And if you don’t, it’s time to start making changes.
