The coaching leader / the wise leader by Lao Tsu


The wise leader does not intervene unnecessarily. The leader’s presence is felt, but often the group runs itself

Lesser leaders do a lot, say a lot, have followers, and form cults.
Even worse ones use fear to energize the group and force to overcome resistance.
Only the most dreadful leaders have bad reputations.

Remember that your are facilitating another person’s process. It is not your process. Do not intrude. Do not control. Do not force your own needs and insights into the foreground.
If you do not trust a person’s process, that person will not trust you.

When people get it right, they will rightly say: “we did it ourselves!" What do you think?

The "Tao of Leadership" by Lao Tsu
