What We Need From Leaders And Employees

nowWork is getting more complex, and there is a natural desire from leaders to attempt simplification as much as possible for the employees under them. But according to this article by Michelle M. Smith, that's not the best thing leaders could be doing. In fact, it might be a better idea to help employees embrace those complexities. By enabling employees, leaders can help them learn to find their own answers, develop their own solutions, and collaborate with eachother outside of having a manager tell them what should be happening.

Likewise, employees need to act as connectors, contributors, and consumers. As Smith explains, this means connecting co-workers to pertinent work and effort, contributing support to others both formally and informally, and actively seek out ideas and imput from others in the organization.
