Give Your Employees More, and Get More Back
According to author Peter Drucker, a responsible worker is a person who “not only is accountable to specific results, but also has the authority to do whatever is necessary to produce these results, and finally, is committed to these results as a personal achievement.” Many managers get the first part of this equation right. They assign tasks to workers and expect them to achieve predetermined results. But, frequently, that’s all. Often, managers don’t really provide their employees with enough accountability to do great work.
