Do yourself out of a job.

Do yourself out of a job.


One piece of advice I often give to new managers or leaders is figure out, as quickly as possible, what they need to do to make themselves redundant.


It could be through the empowering and development of their people through building confidence, capability and resilience so that, in effect, the team members don't need you.


Or it could also be to immediately think about succession planning. Who is the likely person or people that could step up and into your role when you leave? By setting them up for success, and succession, you are able to focus on what you're in the job to do, which is manage and lead towards the bigger picture.


Are you working towards making yourself redundant?……Maybe you should.
