IBGR - RESULTS Radio Network. Everything a business owner needs to start, grow or exit a business. Come grow with us.
To be effective on the job, people need to be empowered with authority to perform their jobs. In an organizational setup, authority can mean several things. It is the power of a leader to command subordinates, issue out instructions for them to follow, giving orders and making decisions on behalf of his team. With authority comes responsibility and for employees within the organization to achieve the business goals and objectives, there is need for authority to be given to people to perform their jobs and do it right. Authority does not just come with responsibility but also gives the individual power to take decisions. There can be instances where the authority given does not match the power that the individual has and this can pose a lot of problem within the organization in getting jobs done. Thus, it is important the authority and power are balanced with responsibility for effectiveness in carrying out tasks and job performance.
The show objective this week is to essentially highlight the importance of allowing employees have the authority to perform their tasks. Employees must be empowered with some authority and power to do their job for active engagement and contribution to the overall business goals and objective of the organization. The focus will be to show how to infuse authority, responsibility, delegation and power for peak performance and effective results.
