Although the workplace seems like an optimal place for speed, having a little patience goes a long way.

Lucas Chow, CEO of MediaCorp Singapore, acknowledges that as a leader he is already far ahead of everyone else.

“You have to realize that you are where you are because you’re moving at a pace that’s much faster … you need to learn how to wait for [others] to catch up with you.”

Getting frustrated with your employees is not going to get the job done any sooner, and a good executive understands that not everyone is moving at the same speed. The most important thing is that the work gets done—and done well.
