Leadership Minute: Know When To Let Go


Abraham Lincoln said, “When you have got an elephant by the hind legs and he is trying to run away; it’s best to let him go.” As a leader knowing what to let go of is an important part of your leadership skill. While there are things that are worthy of your time and attention you also need to know when to cut your losses and move on. Sometimes we try too hard to hold on to those we should let go. When you understand that you can’t do it all, reach all, and be all, the better off you will be. Sometime it’s the people who leave you that do you the greatest favor. Learn to let go.
