As a manager or leader, do you let your people assume more responsibility when they are able? Do you know when that is, or do you keep telling yourself that they aren’t ready yet?
You may be willing to delegate but you don’t know how. Delegation requires the ability to break up large tasks into smaller chunks, establish priorities, and decide which of those chunks they need to perform. You then also need to monitor their progress….
- Demonstrating the capacity to handle the responsibility
- Encouraged to grow their skills by creating a favourable environment
- Give people discretion and autonomy over their tasks and resources
Knowing company direction is very important to a person making decision, so, how well do you manage your employee to stay focused on ‘the bigger picture’?
Your main job as a leader is to be a guiding light to others, to inspire and empower people with your ‘voice of leadership’, transforming their lack of clarity and confidence into hopefulness and resolve in moving forward.
Successful leaders and managers today are willing to exercise their leadership in such a way that their people are empowered to make decisions, share information, and try new things.
Most employees (future leaders) see the value in finding empowerment and are willing to take on the responsibilities that come with it. If future leaders have the wisdom to learn from the experience of present leaders, and if present leaders have the wisdom to build an environment that empowers people, both will share in the benefits.
Motivation is the most powerful emotion that employees bring to work. The manager’s commitment to motivating employees through shared vision and communication is the fundamental skill that great managers bring to the workplace. Employees with clear strategies and direction can work for you without much question ask.
The Bottom-Line? The Leader’s Impact on an Employee is CRITICAL FOR REAL SUCCESS…And KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT TO DO Is Even More Critical!
Motivational problems can lead to performance issues that cost a business thousands of pounds in losses each year. A lack of motivation can lead to delays in the employee’s completion of work and simple but expensive mistakes. By supporting and encouraging involvement, you are helping employees create a sense of connection that extends across departmental boundaries.
People Empowerment Secrets help you motivate your staff by involving them in the entire process, letting them have the ownership.
Behaviours that get rewarded get repeated. Great leaders recognise the power of genuine and well-timed praise and rewards.
Recognising employees for one specific achievement or for ongoing contributions is an excellent way to let them know they are valued. As long as they know that you recognise and value their contribution, they will work hard for you…
