Self Management: The New Way to Business Growthby Ben Goodman ***
Society has changed in many ways. Suffrage is no longer limited to the noble folks. Women are no longer limited to their responsibilities within the home. Everyone can go to college and the workforce is still on their pursuit towards creating a better working environment for their employees.
Society has come a long way. But how can we translate and imitate these societal improvements into the business level?
Change The Management System
Okay, this doesn’t mean change of leadership or employees. It means implementing little changes to the management system of the company. This is especially applicable if your organization is using the traditional management system.
In this case, employees are encouraged to take active roles in things that concern them. Decision-making process is changed. Instead of solely the executives, employees are given the ability to take part in the decision making process.
Employees are usually placed under self-management programs where they are allowed to take steps on matters that concern them. Sociocratic circles are established so that all members in all levels within the hierarchy of the company get to self-manage and take part in the decision making process.
Placing the employees in an integral coaching program can also be effective. This program allows employees to spar with their colleagues and learn different cognitive, communication, and behavioral patterns so they can create effective working relationships.
This way, employees get to understand themselves and their colleagues better. They get to actively engage in their work. They are more able to deliver better results for the company. If there is one thing that society and history has taught us, it is that growth happens when we learn to be more inclusive and genuinely look out for each other’s welfare.
