by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

Early in their careers, leaders move up quickly because they can identify problems and solve them.

At some point, according to leadership gurus Ronald Heifetz and Donald Laurie, you must adopt “balcony” thinking (as someone who’s standing on a balcony while looking down through the organization) and allow others to come up with solutions.

Reality: Leaders who fail to make this critical shift limit other people and keep themselves from soaring.

— Adapted from “The Work of Leadership,” Ronald A. Heifetz and Donald L. Laurie, Harvard Business Review.
