Austrian American management consultant, Peter Drucker said,
“So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.”
Unfortunately, I completely agree with Peter Drucker's statement. Unfortunately, many managers approach their roles with a controlling and micromanaging style that ends up hindering their team's productivity and creativity. Instead of enabling and empowering their team, they make it difficult for people to work by creating unnecessary bureaucracy, imposing rigid rules, and stifling innovation.
The best leaders understand that their role is to facilitate their team's success, not to get in their way. By providing support, resources, and clear communication, they empower their team to do their best work and achieve great results. Ultimately, the most effective management is about creating an environment that enables people to work at their best, not making it difficult for them.
