If you are a leader, it is important to give your team the necessary space to develop and expand their own abilities. And also make sure to offer your team the right work environment that allows them to take responsibility.
If you are a team member, it is equally important to recognize this freedom as an appreciation for yourself and your competencies. Instead of just doing a job, ask yourself, “Am I doing meaningful work and how can I contribute to the mission, purpose and strategic goals of my company?”
Above all, this requires a clear commitment from both sides. The core is to build a trusting relationship based on mutual appreciation.
When leaders and teams respect these principles, the way is clear for building a great business together that will delight everyone.
