Some Talking Points from Carol Barkes on
The Manager’s Role:
- A manager will be most effective if they teach their employees to think about thinking. Instead of telling employees what to do, effective managers should walk their employees through the process of solving their own problems. By doing so, they gradually are not needed for decision making as much, thus empowering their employees and freeing up their own time for more productive endeavors.
