“As a manager of other employees, it may seem like they’re supposed to be working for you, but they’re actually working for the company to achieve the company’s overall goals and objectives. Your role as a manager is to support and enable them.” – Michel Theriault, Forbes Magazine Contributor
Trusting your coworkers and employees enough to get the job done well can be tricky in a business setting. Many of us are more inclined to play it close to the vest, and even micromanage tasks in an effort to get the results we’re looking for. Turns out, the opposite tactic is more effective. The more we cede control and provide needed information to capable, responsible employees, the more the business and the employees thrive.
