Become More Lazy with Michael Bungay Stanier

Today I would like for you to pick up some brilliant tidbits from Box of Crayons Founder, Michael Bungay Stanier, a man who wants you to be more lazy.

When he told me this, I figured that surely he must be joking. Laziness is proven to have a negative impact on your productivity, right? Well, not necessarily. According to Stanier, the best leaders don’t rush into action. Instead, they foster a culture of curiosity and let their direct reports increase their own capacity and their own potential.

Wow! Whoever thought that being lazy could make your team more productive?
