Balancing autonomy and accountability

We all love our top performers because they go above and beyond. They often surprise you with their creativity and ingenuity. They suggest innovations to help the company work more profitably and efficiently. They roll up their sleeves and dig in to help with special projects and crises that need attention.


But how can you, as a manager, help to create a team full of high performers? Today we explore some ideas.


1. A little compassion goes a lot further than toughness and frustration, when an employee makes a mistake.


2. Autonomy without accountability doesn’t work. There needs to be a balance between the two to effectively lead your people. Here’s how you can start practicing this balancing act.


3. We often fail because new habits take time and work.


Cheers!
