Great story. Am sourcing for a gardener. This comes at a right time.

Trust but verify
Your gardener has to be good before you can trust him.

Thoughtful story. Thanks.
After reading this, I reflected as follows:
"Good help is hard to find" is a lament one might often hear (or imagines to hear?) from those who are rich and successful.

But assuming that they are rich because they are successful (not the other way around), it should follow logically that the have such complaint only because they already know how to know, use, and trust good people once they find them. :-)

This style can be used in all things we do and with all people we encounter. You must first trust to be trusted; you must first let go to get back; and you must be content to let it all happen in the first place.

This is great, Anand... that's what an executive should be...


Situational Leadership story; the neighbor uses S1 style with everyone. That doesn't work in business or in life.


I like this one too.
Micromanaging never works on those who are self-starters, those who enjoy what they do and those who are creative. Imo
