Lead with context, not control

In Reed Hastings’s book: no rules rules, one chapter is titled “Lead with context, not control.”

When you hire smart, super talented people and give them proper specification of developments and let them decide. They will end up building the best. You just gave them context and, they took it from there. They will dislike micromanagement.

When you hire mediocre people, you will have to micromanage and spoonfeed them. Working just with context will hamper the development.

I found this analogy as an eye-opener.
