My answer to What is right way to balance employees and employer relationship?
Answer by Ken Larson:
Below are four management techniques I have observed that achieve the objective you seek:
- Know how much leadership to offer and how much to let the individual grow on his or her own.
- Strike the right balance between specific and generic guidance so the unique individual traits of the workers come through in the business model and solutions to problems, system design and success of the firm are derived from the people running the enterprise and not from the leader.
- Manage constructively by fostering an environment respectful of all points of view
- Drive to fulfilling progressive objectives as a first priority and blend differences of opinion decisively.
