Description

In this book, we’ll show you why the old industrial ways of managing no longer work. We’ll explain the different ways you can delegate duties and responsibilities to others and why, when done effectively, delegation can be the best thing you ever do for your staff. We’ll show you the nature of power in the modern organization and why your people have more power than ever before. This eBook will give you the skills to create a new kind of organization in which teams are self-empowering and individuals are self-motivating. It sounds like Utopia. It isn’t. It’s a recipe for survival and success.

Preface

How do you manage your staff? If you still spend a lot of your time controlling others, restraining them and restricting them, you are micro-managing what is your most valuable resource. For when you control others, not only is life harder for you, but you get much less in return than you could. In today’s business world, you need to manage people in a way that releases their power, stretches their contribution, and adds to their value. You can’t do this by restraining them. Nor can you do it by over-supervising their every move. You can only do it by empowering them.

In this book, we’ll show you why the old industrial ways of managing no longer work. We’ll explain the different ways you can delegate duties and responsibilities to others and why, when done effectively, delegation can be the best thing you ever do for your staff. We’ll show you the nature of power in the modern organization and why your people have more power than ever before. This book will give you the skills to create a new kind of organization in which teams are self-empowering and individuals are self-motivating. It sounds like Utopia. It isn’t. It’s a recipe for survival and success.
