Agree with this post completely....especially the summary of Mutual responsibility. Team members need to know that there managers are behind them 100%. Great post!


Completely true. Riskier activities would require you to pay more attention than usual and be kept in the loop on any changes and problems that employees are encountering. It also helps for you to clearly state what your expectations are and make sure that employees are clear on what they need to do.

Hi Steve

The riskier anything is the more a manager and the rest of the team should be involved, because it helps moderate it. It is also just as important that the person you are pushing to s risky stretch goal, understand that if they fail, you are the one who will accept the blame. This is something great managers do, they give their people the credit when they succeed, by they assume the blame for failure. After all as a manager you are to get your people to do the work, but if you give a job to someone who cannot handle it, when they fail it was your fault, because you should have known better. In truly great organizations this is a fundamental attitude.
