Was getting my hair cut today, and as always having a good conversation with the girl who cuts my hair. Really nice lady.
She said, she hates it when people come in wanting their hair styled and say I really dont want to do anything with my hair. She said this happens all the time.
The obvious question is then why are you here? What is really happening is that person is trying to get the stylist to decide for them. She said she’s learned the best way to handle this is not to decide for them because they may not like what you do.
The best thing to do is to talk to them and lead them to a decision by helping them define what they want.
There are huge leadership implications here.
Our role as leaders many times is not to decide for those who follow us but to lead them to a decision.
This takes communication, patience, and clear vision.
How does this relate to you and your leadership? Talk to me.
