Leaders are paid to deliver results - which are materialized through the direct actions of their subordinates. For many leaders, they’ve spent years getting promoted and praised for delivering advice and providing all the answers. This actually creates a vicious cycle of overdependency and an overwhelmed, disconnected workforce.
For the first time in history, there are 5 generations of workers, and the Millennials are redefining expectations of how they want to be lead. Today’s employees want a sense of purpose and to feel that they contribute. They want to feel challenged and be challenged thus allowing their full potential to be unlocked. They expect leaders to guide and coach so that they themselves can figure out the solutions. Chances are, their solutions will be far better than what the leader may come up with.
Breaking the vicious cycle and creating a more productive workforce starts with asking the right questions.
