It might be a cliché, but there really is no “I” in team. Aren’t employees and managers supposed to be working together towards a common goal?
Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Some leaders take all the credit, give demands instead of instructions, and focus on the bottom line instead of happiness. And that mentality can be detrimental to employee development.
So how do leaders go from taking all the credit to shouldering all the blame? Instead of putting their direct reports down, how do managers learn to empower employees?
This SlideShare from Wiley provides tips for leaders who want to forget the “I” mentality and embrace “we” more often.
