Real simple leadership tips
The October issue of Real Simple magazine has an article titled, “How to Raise a Problem-Solver.”
They give four tips:
- Make room for play – provide unstructured time for invention and “reasonable” risk-taking
- Support purpose – assign real work that matters and benefits other people
- Ask questions – give space to practice decision-making skills
- Let go of perfect – prepare for mistakes and make it ok when things don’t work exactly right
This seems like really smart leadership advice, too.
Each day, I publish an idea I'm working on, highlights from a founder coaching session, or other tidbits from my work with founders, investors, corporate partners, and accelerators. Check out the Hustle+Fire blog for more.
