“The best leader is one who has sense enough to pick good people to do what must be done, and the self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.”
—Theodore Roosevelt, American President
How About You

Do you let them get involved, only to jump in at the last minute to put your stamp on the finished product? Do you have any sense?
