Remember the old adage, “If you want something done, you have to do it yourself”? It’s easy for a leader to feel that way. But the truth is, if you really want something done, you must communicate what you want done clearly to your team.
Malta Dynamics’ CEO Damian Lang learned this lesson years ago. He knows too well the struggle of hearing “That’s Not My Job” and has developed strategies to create teams, rather than individuals who are looking for anybody and anyone else to complete those essential tasks. It’s all about building a culture of accountability.
In this month’s contractor tip, Damian outlines the importance of empowering and motivating your employees to do the job and make decisions that are in line with the company’s mission.
A Few Key Points to Consider:
- Have you established core values for your team?
- Does your leadership team model these values?
- Have you established a culture of trust?
The biggest takeaway is that your employees should feel accountable for their actions and your leaders should trust the decisions they are making. Ready to learn how to do just that? See what Damian has to say in this article.
