Inspect what you expect.

Inspection, done well, communicates care, that you’re invested, and value, that the work is important. Inspection can also allow someone to “brag” and “show off” their work, instilling a sense of accomplishment or pride — a positive sense dignity and worth.

Inspection also provides accountability, and can spurn inspiration when lulls of motivation sets in.

A leader who understand the proper forms of inspection will also approach inspection as a detective, someone who investigates strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats, breakdowns in communication, and blind spots. This heightens the leader’s ability to listen, and understand reality, the first step of a leader.

In other words, leadership demands that we pay attention.
