Successful leaders empower their people to make decisions, share information, and take risks. Here are three ways to get out of your people’s way and let them take ownership:

  • Give responsibility and autonomy. Let those who demonstrate the capacity to handle responsibility take on new levels of accountability and have autonomy over their tasks and resources.
  • Focus on growth. Create an environment where people have the opportunity to expand their skills and are rewarded for doing so.
  • Don’t second-guess. Unless it is absolutely necessary, don’t doubt the decisions of others. This undermines their confidence and encourages them to hold back when they have ideas.
