This week, one of my executive coaching clients shared, “I’m so tired of the lack of ownership in this company!” It’s not unusual to hear that kind of phrase, whether a leader is talking about an individual, a team, or an entire organization.
To encourage greater ownership in any situation, I encourage clients to pause and consider “what” they are actually delegating. Is it simply the tasks/the “doing”? Or are they delegating the thinking that leads to the tasks? If you want to drive stronger ownership, delegate the thinking!What other ways can you drive greater ownership at work?
