Time to Build Ownership of a Task
Quote: The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence. Denis Waitley
Our thoughts: Your business is designed to get the results it is getting. If your employees are not taking ownership of a task then you need to look at how to design your business to get those results. Last month we wrote about the Top Three Systems your employees need to have ownership of their role or the roots of responsibility. This month, we're focusing on a micro view of each task so that you can give your employees the wings of independence. We won't pretend that this is easy. It's not. In fact, it can be frustrating. We all want the result, but the businesses that succeed are the ones that are willing to do the work. This week, we challenge you to think about the time devoted to making sure your employees have both the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.
Question: How much time is your business willing to invest to ensure that your employees have the "roots of responsibility and the wings of independence?"
