Often at companies you’ll see managers who want to run their own area without transparency, and without collaboration. They create an “us versus them” dynamic. Turf lines are drawn, and you can almost see the different divisions plotting against one another like something out of a Machiavellian medieval court.
Good leaders provide enough management oversight to give a clear and coherent idea of vision and purpose, but not to the extent that they micromanage. They ensure employees make good decisions, and then step back to let the good decisions happen.
