Stepping Down or Stepping Aside?

Submitted by James Higginbotham on August 18, 2009 – 4:00 amNo Comment

Something comes up. You need time off from your leadership. What do you end up doing – stepping down or stepping aside?

Stepping down means you leave your team on their own. You haven’t prepared to hand the leadership to others, so you leave a vacuum.The transition isn’t smooth and becomes the same level of impact as if you were leaving permanantly.

Stepping aside means you allow other leaders in your team to step up. You’ve worked to prepare other leaders to take over.Your absence will be missed, but won’t cause a negative impact.

As a leader, it is up to you to prepare your team. It is up to you to invest in the leadership of those in your team.

It is up to you whether you step down or step aside when you need time off. What will you choose?
