Tips from Wednesday, December 10, 2008
The Small Business tips today will be about being that empowering leader.
- Provide employees with the history behind procedures and policies. Background is essential for good decision making.
- Provide the necessary resources. Your list of contacts? Appropriate forms? Give your employees the opportunity to succeed.
- Teach employees what to do when they can’t solve a problem; going to the president should not be the consistent solution.
- Learn to delegate. This will build confidence and teach employees the necessary steps to follow in your business.
Daily Overview: Be forthcoming with information and resources. Teach problem-solving skills and allow them to take on other things.
I post small business tips on my Twitter account each day, Monday through Friday. This is a reposting of those tips.
