Powerfield – two-way street

When Robert Eaton, CEO of Chrysler, asked how his company increased its profit by 246%, he replied: "If I were to use one word, it would be permissible." Unlike a single-way delegation, it makes it possible to improve both up and down and improvements in the workplace.

Unfortunately, the process of dropping power is awesome to some executives. They fear that the power of attorney can tear them out of their power and sometimes very much from their work. A few fears can give some employees more knowledge than the supervisor does or may have more expertise than himself.
Or, if something goes wrong, they might be worried that the blame is on their shoulders. To overcome these fears, administrators should start with small projects, projects that have regular progress in construction. With clearly defined terms and goals, both the manager and the employee – to say nothing about the company – benefit from the strengthening of the workforce.

However, there are employees who are afraid to have authority. Emphasis is placed on risk – risk of assuming more responsibility and being taught if the project fails. But on the other side of the grant is the confidence that grows when we show our ability. With demonstrated talent comes the opportunity to work with less control. When we trust, as a rule, we rise to the requirements of the asset. Employees who dislike routine and prompt to show what they can do should ask for more responsibility – if only for small tasks at first. Because control over power is placed on selective shoulder shifts, it fits better with each existing day.

Collaborative Project is the Answer
Above all, mentors and their direct reports need to work as collaborators, as information flows freely among them. Supervisors can not simply override their own powers, then go away, expect everything to be done as it should. And employees can not take full control and think they can work without administrative level. Instead, a continuous exchange of ideas and information, with the help of thought as needed and assistance provided as requested or requested.
