Good leaders know that they can’t fix someone or change a culture with a single conversation any more than they can make a business an instant, overnight success. Progress is what’s important. Progress is about consistency, and learning only happens after enough progress is made.
Leaders who want to add speed to the process of developing others or creating an engaged team often make poor choices, overuse authority and sometimes push people or teams in the opposite direction of the one they want them to go.
Don’t let your sense of urgency get in the way of the learning process.
