Many managers have the mistaken belief that they must have all of the answers and that it is a sign of weakness to seek advice from their subordinates. This approach to management often results in poor decision-making. Your front-line employees are an excellent source of data, yet they are not consulted regarding decisions that they are required to administer and implement. Your employees have their finger “on the pulse” of your customers and the organization, and they have experience in what will and will not work. By consulting your employees regarding important decisions, you will increase their motivation towards their work and their respect for you as a manager.
Focus on asking your employees for their opinions and advice this week!
