People may think that a manager's job is telling people what to do, but a lot of people don't realize that it doesn't actually work that way. No. It's really the other way around. You lead by servicing your staff.
A good leader is one who knows that, in reality, YOU work for THEM.
And whether you realize it or not, you get that. You clear roadblocks for people, you remove obstacles, you're there for them... AND you make it fun.
You really get it.
Loosely paraphrasing my IT Director at my recent performance evaluation.
O_O I didn't realize it. So... whoa.
