Ceding control

Good morning,

After running Strava, the San Francisco-based app for athletes, for over a decade, Michael Horvath realized his leadership strategy needed a major upgrade. Namely, he needed to stop trying to micromanage everything.  

"I can't run it the same way I did when we were 50 people," he says. Strava now has four offices around the globe and more than 400 employees. "The biggest difference in my style is relying on my team,” Horvath says in the latest Inc. What I Know podcast. Instead of sitting down with employees and spouting his own ideas, he realized he needs to ask for ideas and perspectives and let them drive the discussion.

The approach sounds simple, but has clear results. If you hire talented individuals who want to make a difference and they believe in the mission of your company, don't hold them back by limiting what they can do to contribute. Read on for more on why listening is key to unlocking your team’s full potential.
