How to Guarantee High-Quality Decision-Making and Execution with a Culture of Empowerment
Do you feel a growing sense of leadership overwhelm that doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon?
Have you ever “tried” delegation only to have it backfire, leaving you with twice as much work?
Do you wish you could trust all your key leaders to make grade decisions even when you aren’t there?
The truth is great leaders empower their people. Good leaders think they empower their people. The gap between the two is much greater than you think.
When you start an organization, your success comes from your ability to make exceptional decisions and execute them. Then, as the organization grows, you can delegate more and more of the doing.
This first barrier to growth tends to be relatively easy to overcome, as the added help is a welcome relief to their out-of-control schedule. Typically you can start with the tasks you hated anyway. It can be tough to let go of some of the doing, but by holding onto the decision-making, you still have a pulse on the business and the control you need to feel comfortable and move the business forward.
And forward you go, all the metrics on the business dashboard are pinned at 11. All the charts go up and to the right. But so does the demand for your time and attention. Slowly but surely, you find yourself doing less but busier than ever. Then the problems come. It starts small, but then the day hits when you realize all you do is fix stuff. Lost are the days when you could dream and see that dream turn into action.
It’s exhausting. You’ve got a killer work ethic. You know how to get things done, but now you’re working more hours each day, and when you finish for the day, you’re further behind than when you started.
What’s going on here?
The barrier you’re bumping up against is an empowerment barrier. And empowerment isn’t something we say we are doing. It’s not buy-in, it’s not vision, it’s not even delegation. Instead, empowerment is an organization (not just you as the founder) that is able to make, implement, monitor, and adjust high-quality decision-making at the appropriate levelthroughout the enterprise.
Now, I know you’re probably thinking, “I tried that, and it failed miserably!” They made terrible decisions, ran in different directions, or caved under pressure and did nothing.” If that was your experience with delegating, I want you to know that it is perfectly normal. Most leaders, especially new leaders, try to delegate too early, and it flops.
But that doesn’t mean for a minute that delegation doesn’t work or that you can’t do it.
So what do you do?
In this livestream event, we will show you five ways to truly empower your people and accelerate your growth like never before. This time, you can do it without the endless hustle. Instead, you’ll be able to equip your leaders to do far more than you could ever hope to accomplish alone. And you’ll discover how rewarding leading through empowerment can be!
