Taking Control…Don’t

We have the propensity to want to take control of things.  The important thing to remember is there is a difference in between control and contribution.  Taking control can often lead to stagnation of a project.  Letting go of control  allows a project to move further faster as there is more energy and input.  If the project fails to move without you controlling it the next question becomes ‘is it your priority, or do you need to lay it down and walk away’.

Just a side note…controlling and leadership most certainly are not the same thing.  If you are a leader, you most likely are contributing and not controlling.
