How Do Employees Learn to Manage Themselves
What is your goal when you manage employees? Do you like your hands into what they are doing or are you willing to take the time to guide them and teach them to manage themselves? Saw this simple, though impactful post:
Huff Post Blog “Managing Employees to Manage Themselves” by Bruce Tulgan. He is a well known management guru that states in simple terms what you need to do to build a strong team that know how to manage themselves.
I am often asked whether there is a danger that providing too much oversight and engaged management will keep employees from developing their ability to manage themselves. The answer is no. In fact, the only real way to help employees get better at managing themselves is to manage them well.
Managing employees is a day-by-day activity that encompasses a significant part of your responsibilities. Employees don’t succeed without clarity, direction and a working relationship with their manager.
Managing employees is all about teaching.
