“Good executives confuse themselves when they convince themselves that they DO things…Set a vision, listen to the team,  and then get out of the way.” Marissa Mayer, CEO, Yahoo. 

While there are many hidden assumptions underpinning this simple statement, it still serves as a strong reminder for those of us tempted to micro-manage.
