You’re the boss, you should make the calls, right?
You’re paid to make decisions, and you’re responsible for the outcomes. But that doesn’t mean you can’t and shouldn’t involve the people you work with in the decision-making process.
“How do you think we should handle it”? can be one of the most important things you ever say to an employee.
When you ask for their input, three good things will happen, even before you get an answer.
1. You show your respect for the employee.
2. You show that you don’t think you have all the answers.
3. You open yourself up to a chance to get valuable information, and that means you can make better decisions.
Asking is only half the process. Listening is the other half. Give employees your full attention. Show them by word and gesture that you’re paying attention. Ask questions.
You won’t necessarily share their perspectives, but it’s important that you try to understand them. You won’t necessarily agree with their solutions, but you should take them seriously and consider them carefully.
It takes courage and initiative for an employee to speak up to the boss. Reward that courage with your words and actions. Questions and suggestions are positive contributions, not threats. They’ll make you a better manager.
