Equipping Leaders with Critical Skills
The best leaders create and maintain organizations in which each employee has opportunities to influence his or her job, the work environment, and identify ways to find time how the job gets done.
The employees in such organizations are engaged and involved. They are loyal, committed and productive. They are regularly and consistently involved in discussion, problem-solving and decision–making regarding the work they do.
They are continually asked “From your point of view, what’s working, what’s not working, what needs to be different, what do you need to get your job done in the best possible fashion, are you getting what you need, including materials, tools, information, feedback; what are you getting that you don’t need?” And, critically, the organization listens and responds to what the employees say.
The best leaders consistently involve their employees in these discussions both formally and informally. On a day-to-day basis they have one-on-one conversations on these topics. On a regular and scheduled basis they have meetings with their employees as a group in which the group considers the same set of questions: “What’s working and what’s not working, what do we need to do differently?”
