Finding the Right Balance Between Flexibility and Control
The buzzword “empowerment” sounds appealing to most leaders and managers, as does the idea of enabling their employees to feel a sense of ownership in their work. Why? The opposite—micro-management— results in high turnover and frustration all around the office, including for you. Unfortunately, most of the good will around empowerment falls to the wayside once deadlines come into view and the pressure mounts.
The strategies Dr. Anthony Silard will share with you in this session, if practiced correctly, will provide you with the key to your own prison cell, as you will be able to stop doing everything yourself. How? By finally rising to the leadership challenge of getting others to do the work you want them to by making it their own. In this cutting-edge session, you will learn how to create an internal system in your organization that puts some weight behind these high ideals. You will also learn about the relationship between flexibility and self-confidence, and have the opportunity to make some revealing discoveries about how this relationship plays out in both your personal and professional life.
