Guidelines for Management: Treat Your Employees Like They’re Smarter Than You

TREAT YOUR EMPLOYEES LIKE THEY’RE SMARTER THAN YOU.  

Your employees may very well be smarter than you; treat them accordingly.

– seek their input and feedback

– implement their suggestions as often as possible

– adapt their job responsibilities to allow for their growth and utilization of skills

– offer praise as often as appropriate

– it’s okay to let them know that they are better at something than you

– it’s not okay to confuse your responsibilities with theirs and vice versa.  At the end of the day, you are still responsible for them, not the other way around.
