Initiative vs. Control and Compliance

What you want as an employer is for your employees to show initiative, think for them selves, and respond fast when needed for day-to-day challenges. But are you willing to “let go” of control so they can step out of their box?

When they show a little extra effort, do you reward it or criticize it? Can you recognize that for a key employee to “step up” you might have to step down? Can you appreciate that it might be more challenging for your employees to “step out of their box,” then it is for you as an owner to step out of your comfort zone of control?

Many business owners feel threatened at even the thought of giving up control, and in one way or another, have designed business practices to support control rather than performance.

If what you’re getting is compliance instead of high performance, productivity, and profitability, there is very strong evidence this might be you.
