A leader should not go to the office and lock his/herself up in the room for eight hours. They must form the habit of working in block-hours of 90 minutes or 120 minutes and move out of their office to other offices to see what other team members are doing
They must lead by moving around and checking on team members to see what is stewing in the various departments. By so doing, they can quickly arrest things that are going wrong, put off fires of infighting and give direction to the activities of team members. The leader should not always sit in the office until issues are brought to him or her. Pay surprise visits and nose round for what is working or not working.
Learning the habit of working in block-hours has inherent health benefits as it helps the leader to exercise the muscles at regular intervals and promotes team efficiency and cohesion.
