As a leader, realize that your vantage point is different than your direct reports. You have a telescope (vision) and your employees have a microscope (details), hence they see and hear things you’re unable to and vice-versa.
For you to lead a successful team, you can’t rely exclusively on information that you possess. For optimal decision making, you have to listen to what’s being surfaced from your team and find a way to marry your information with theirs. This allows for a richer outcome and, in all honesty, a better world.
You have the ability to look far and wide, your team has the ability to zoom in.
