Close the leadership gap by taking half-charge.

Start Taking Half-Charge

In Leadership by Jason Cortel

Leaders naturally take charge, delegate tasks and follow-up with those tasks until they are completed. Sometimes we take charge when we feel people aren’t moving fast enough or when we feel they aren’t going to do it the way we think it should be done. Leaders are so busy balancing all their plates that they blindly think taking charge is just easier. The worst reason to take charge is because your way is the only way that is acceptable.

We continue to see the leadership gap widening. There are too few leaders to fill all the vacancies needed for companies to achieve their goals or lead their strategic initiatives. When leaders take half-charge they start to fill that leadership gap.

When you take half-charge you sit back and let others lead allowing them cultivate their own leadership presence. You are there for them when they need your guidance but your influence isn’t impacting how they are carrying out their tasks. They are able to find their own voice, learn how to make their own decisions and become a more valued talent asset.

Start finding opportunities to take half-charge and start grooming the future leaders around you. We can’t ignore the leadership gap any longer. Effectively closing the leadership gap will give you competitive advantage.
