A lesson from a mid-wife

Remember that if there is a problem, you don't always need to sort it! Think of how a mid-wife copes with a difficult birth - if the mother is struggling she doesn't step in and give birth. She stands and
  • Encourages
  • Talks to her and coaches her through the difficulties
  • Supports her
  • Keeps communicating to her, showing empathy
It is easy to step in, but a leader stands back and encourages the "birth of an idea or solution"
