这不是一件容易的罢工密切管理你的员工,让他们主动之间的平衡。根据您的管理风格,你可能会觉得它更是你的天性微操你的员工的任务,并确保每个人都越来越按照你的标准完成工作。或者,如果你对频谱的另一端倾斜,你可能会喜欢把你的手拿开缰绳,让你的员工的衣角,主要是管理自己。

在大多数情况下,“正确”的方式落在这两个极端之间的灰色地带的某个地方。只有你知道你的员工如何处理某些情况下,只有你能判断与责任下放你的舒适程度。而是帮助你找到了平衡,对你和你的团队的作品,旨在遵循这些授权管理技术哈佛商业评论.

1. “Give power to those who have demonstrated the capacity to handle the responsibility.”

这是essence of managementin a nutshell.

When an employee handles tasks competently, quickly, and with care, that employee has proven that he has a strong work ethic and cares about doing a good job. Especially if he demonstrates a long-term pattern of doing good work, you can safely trust him to take on additional responsibilities. You may want to steadily increase the areas for which he is responsible, or eventually promote him to a position where he can manage other employees within that area.

This is in contrast to the idea of hiring a manager from the outside of the company to look over your existing employees. When businesses bring in unknown people to act as supervisors instead of trusting current employees with the promotion, it sends the signal that even the hard workers on your team will not be rewarded with your trust. That can undermine your employees’ drive to strive for excellence and instead leaves them wondering, “What is the point of trying harder?”

当你慢慢下放更多的责任,权力和工人的福利谁已经证明了自己有能力,它提供了整个团队与激励的工作做好。它还增添善意的感觉,当你的员工知道你信任他们,并奖励他们的努力。这可以提高员工保留,并保持最好的工人在你的团队几年来。

2.“创建一个鼓励人们发展他们的技能,一个有利的环境。”

Stagnation is the enemy.

它不仅意味着你的企业是不是它可能是速度增长,这也为法术你的员工团队麻烦。当员工感到厌倦和停止奋斗改进的地方,他们很可能会寻求更多的满足和其他有价值的职业生涯。

To combat this, do your best to offer a supportive atmosphere where employees are encouraged to keep reaching higher.

You can do this a number of ways:• Providing reimbursement or other incentives for continuing education• Allowing schedule readjustments for employees who need time to attend continuing education classes• Offering tiered salaries for the most qualified and most effective employees to earn more• Giving recognition (verbal congratulations, awards, or whatever fits your style) to employees who have achieved new milestones like bringing in a record number of new memberships, graduating from a class, or earning a new certification

3.“不要揣测别人的决定和想法,除非它是绝对必要的。”

When you shoot down your employees’ ideas, you undermine their confidence. You also make it less likely that your employees will want to speak up and share their ideas in the future. This can cause a collapse in trust and communication that ultimately hurts your relationship with your employees and sabotages their motivation to work hard for your business.

If at all possible,鼓励参与和想法从你的团队共享。他们应该知道,他们的想法和感受是有效的对您和您采取的每个建议考虑。

Even if you have zero intention of putting a particular idea into practice, still be careful to make sure your message to your employees is encouraging rather than discouraging.

如果你的直觉反应是拍摄下来的东西,咬你的舌头了几秒钟,并重新考虑你的方法。考虑了一会儿后,你可以选择这样说,“我真的很感谢您的建议。恐怕会为X原因就像你来自何处不工作,但我。”

Not only does that show your employees that you listen to what they have to say, it encourages them to come to you with future suggestions if they think of a good workaround that would solve whichever roadblock was in the way.

4.“给人们自由裁量权和自主权他们的任务和资源。”

Your employees understand their jobs. They also know the tools, resources, and steps required to accomplish their tasks. It can be frustrating for an employee who knows he needs something in particular to accomplish a task to first have to run it by you for authorization. It makes him feel like he is being micromanaged, it slows down the entire process, and it wastes your time when you have to approve every small step of the process.

这对一些经理放手他们的控制,并允许员工使用自己的判断一个可怕的一步。在某些情况下,它可能确实是适合你保持一个实用的方法,例如使用全新的员工​​或员工不具备责任的最好纪录是谁。

允许自由裁量权和自主权可以开始给予更多的权力来的好方法你最有价值的员工, as discussed in section one. You can start by relaxing your oversight on tasks that you’re confident your best employee can handle and seeing how that goes. When it goes well and your employee handles the responsibility admirably, you can feel confident in rewarding that employee with more power and responsibility. It’s a positive cycle that helps you, your workers, and your business.
