    Default put the work in charge of you

    Would you please explain the following in bold in easy English?

    1. While it is easy to become mired in the details of the day-to-day, leadership without forethought will put the work in charge of you rather than the other way around.

    2. Madison has begun to see where and how her innovative ability is facilitative to her leadership and where and how it is not. She has begun to form parameters in her mind for her evolving leadership style. She is fortunate in some respects because she is well-disposed to right brain thinking, in particular, innovative thought.

    Thank you.

    This is business/leadership jargon.
    A good leader needs to be in control. S/he is supposed to be in charge of the underlings, have a good overview of the current business, and to have a vision for the future. Without this, the leader loses control and the job starts to dictate to him/her what needs to be done. This happens to managers who don't delegate tasks, and they get mired down in the mundane details, when they should be keeping an eye on the "big picture".

    Madison forms parameters - she begins to get an idea where her limits are; she develops an effective style; she learns how to balance her responsibilities with delegation; how much detail she needs to involve herself in compared to how much time she gives to contemplating the big picture, etc.
