I recently had to drive for about an hour in a dense fog.  Thank goodness for the white line on the side of the road or I would not have made it.

I know that line is there all the time, but I usually don’t pay attention to it.  I suppose at night it becomes a subconscious guide, but for the most part, I don’t even notice its existence. 

Yet, in fog or bad weather, that white stripe becomes an essential lifeline for a driver.

Try to be like that line for your employees: where they are mostly unaware that you are guiding them, but you are always there when they need you.

It’s a good style to drive an organization.
