They say “don’t sweat the small stuff” & “pick your battles” but over time the build up of unnecessary small inefficiency can really drag your team down.

“a good manager only has 2 main priorities: 1. Remove all unnecessary obstacles from your subordinates’ path so that they have a greater chance for success 2.
