In my book Drop the Ball, I discuss tactics on releasing expectations to focus on what's most important to you. At home, this can be an easier exercise because we feel like we have a lot more of control over what happens. At work, when dealing with other people's priorities and expectations, it can be more challenging. Here's my advice: Always lead with the forest and then lead with the trees. This means dropping the ball at work is less about relinquishing responsibility and more about deciding on your highest and best use and how you can delegate to propel other people on your team. Watch and find out how you can drop the ball at work and strengthen—not damage—your brand.
