Delegation and Empowerment

"Stepping-Back" Management

delegation_larg_175How do you manage your staff? If there's still a strong element of control, restraint and restriction about the way you manage, you could be shooting yourself in the foot. Sure, these were the ways managers managed in bygone days. And vital for getting the goods out the door. But the Industrial Age styles of managing are all but dead and buried. In the new Information Age, you need a new way of doing things. One that's built on trust, respect and valuing, where managers don't issue commands, but create opportunities. Don't control, but release. Don't restrain, but help. Don't say No, but say Yes. Don't keep power to themselves, but empower others. If you've still got to make the change, don't worry. There's still time. Just.
