So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work. – Peter Drucker
One of the hallmarks of a good leader is that he or she can cut through the maze of red tape and bureaucracy and free up people to work and actually accomplish things. If you have frustrated team members bogged down in endless paperwork, reports and spreadsheets, etc. it can clog up the pipeline with busywork verses filling up the pipeline with prospects and opportunity. While there is validity and necessity to organizational details be careful not to let it consume you to the point of interfering with work. Don’t be difficult. Free your people to be their best.
