Let Them Lead

Michaela Hart

Command and control, top-down, centralized decision-making doesn’t work for employees, who feel less engaged than ever. It doesn’t work for organizations, who struggle to adapt fast enough when the industry changes rapidly. And it doesn’t work for leaders, who are left wondering how they’ll be able to do more with even less.

What we need is a new model. One that doesn’t restrict employees, but empowers them. One that allows organizations to flourish, not flounder. And one that enables leaders to do what they really want to do: build and develop an amazing team that happily gets the job done.

That new model is here.

In Let Them Lead: How to Command Less and Accomplish More, author Michaela Hart details a play book for both employees and leaders alike. Michaela draws on her own experience as an accomplished executive in corporate America to detail exactly how to lead yourself and your own career, delegate power and authority to your team, and how to deal with any challenges that may arise. This is an essential guide to modern management regardless of your position.
