Foster a culture where worker support one another

Foster a culture of helping and notifying each other and tell leaders to avoid trying to do everything on their own — a leader should trust their team members to handle their tasks and assist when others are overwhelmed. This means leaders should promote a culture where workers care for each other, and the leader lets their team care for them.

They can make a [circle] diagram and put the things they can control and act on in the centre. Then they can put the things they can influence a bit further out. Then they can put the things they cannot control outside. This can help them focus and prioritize their efforts."
