Frankly the biggest problem in the workplace today is that leaders still make all the significant decisions. People who are not in leadership roles are given very few opportunities to make impactful decisions. This can rob people of the chance to be fully engaged in their work and contribute to the organization by providing their unique knowledge and expertise.
When you allow your peers and employees to be creative, to use their unique strengths, they will get more out of their work lives and you will get more from them. I wanted to share my experience, the lessons I have learned, with other leaders in the hope that they will reap the benefits I discovered when I empowered the people that worked for me with the power to make impactful decisions.
