Joanna Howes

In today's episode, we delve into a common pattern observed in leadership roles. 

Many leaders find themselves overly involved in their team's activities, often due to a natural desire for control and involvement. 

However, effective leadership requires recognising when to step back and empower your team to reach their full potential. 

Join us as we explore the pitfalls of reliant leadership and provide actionable steps to foster a more independent and capable team.

Key discussion points:

  • Creating reliance between you and your team
  • Understanding how it’s easy and normal to fall into this trap
  • The consequences of being a reliant leader
  • How to identify if this is what you are doing
  • The empowerment to grow your team’s potential 
  • The actions you can take to encourage ownership and initiative from your team


Breaking the pattern of reliant leadership is crucial for both personal growth as a leader and the professional development of your team.
