“If you struggle to devolve decision-making onto your team, don’t just commit to trusting your employees more. Follow superbosses in creating the preconditions for trust. Embrace a general mindset of constant experimentation and change. Stay close to your employees and become a “hands on delegator.” And hem in decision-making by forging and communicating a clear vision. If you lay the groundwork, delegating decisions ceases to be nerve-wracking. It becomes what it should be: natural, exciting, and value-creating for boss and employees alike.”
I like this article. I could extrapolate this example to parenting or academic teaching. Who would we be with more clarity of vision?
