On Servant Leadership

In this model, managers spend less time time making decisions, and more time clarifying ownership and clearing out road blocks

Perfectly stated:

One indelible lesson from David and Elias is the philosophy of servant leadership. Servant leadership focus managers on serving their team, not the other way around. Sometimes that means helping solidify a vision, but more often it means empowering people and teams with an uncomfortable level of ownership. In this model, managers spend less time time making decisions, and more time clarifying ownership and clearing out blockers. Employees spend less time in status updates and internal alignment meetings and more time with customers. Most importantly, everyone learns accountability — and grows as leaders themselves from that experience.
