What Great Cooks and Great Leaders Have In Common

Great leaders let people get on with it

Bad leaders like to ‘shake the pan’.

You see this a lot on TV cooking shows. The producer tells the chef to keeping shuffling the risotto around the pan. It’s more fun to watch, but apparently it’s not always the best way to cook.

To top chefs, learning when to leave food alone – when to resist the temptation to flip the steak – is as important as learning when to manipulate it. It’s the same for leaders. Great leaders know when to stir things up and when to let it simmer.

I thought this analogy was great!  Have a wonderful Friday 🙂
