If you are in a leadership or management role, do you allow your employees to take on more responsibilities as their abilities improve? How do you measure when that is? If you’re like many managers, you make the mistake of putting off increasing responsibilities for too long. Many people want to move into a leadership or partnership role, but find that their managers aren’t able to let go. It’s critical to empower your employees to empower themselves so that there will be strong leaders in your business when it’s time for you to move on.
Think About What You Say
One of the biggest leaders in the business world found that he was too stubborn and opinionated. He also discovered that he didn’t do a good job of letting other qualified people make decisions because that got in the way of him being correct. He started to take a breath before speaking and ask himself whether or not what he was going to say was worth it. Almost 50% of the time, his comments would have been accurate but not worth it. By focusing on empowering your team, you will surround yourself with qualified leadership and the entire company will benefit.
Empowering Your Employees
The whole reason that you have employees is to fill jobs that are necessary for your company to grow and flourish. When you hired and trained your staff, you made sure that they were familiar with their tasks and roles within the entire business. As a leader, it’s essential to realize that your employees are qualified, so they are ready to grow and lead as well. Being a great leader means empowering your employees to empower themselves. Focus on support and encouragement instead of micromanaging.
