Some managers take a, "Don’t do anything without my approval," approach.
It doesn’t take long before team members stop contributing new ideas.
Could this be happening at your company?
It's easy to spot. When you observe your team, how do they behave and interact? Are decisions being made based on guiding principles or is everyone asking for permission?
Successful organizations are built on vision and guiding principles. These principles position you and your team to make confident, high quality decisions. Everyone knows where they’re going, what’s acceptable, and what’s possible. You create a culture where people don’t have to ask for permission before they take action. Over time, you build a team that thrives on good judgment, speed, efficiency, and results.
