Span of . . .?

Lots of leaders talk about their “span of control” – or the number of employees that report to them.  This is a case where the traditional language is no longer helpful (in fact, I would say it is counter productive.

Remarkable leaders don’t focus on control… so why think about span of control?

How about “span of care” instead?  Do you think about those you care for or those you control?

Think about it and adjust your language accordingly.

Why? Because our words make a difference.
