My Ah Ha moment had to be when the class discussed the situation with Jack, Jill, and Tami along with the fact that there may be times when management may be too close to the situation to adequately make an unbiased decision regarding a particular situation. As a manager, I sometimes get in my own way by believing that I have all the answers. I learned that I’m not infallible and that sometimes I may need to allow someone else into the conversation to help me make a decision regarding a problem employee’s behavior.
Because I am such a control-obsessed individual, there are times that I do not understand that I may be causing more harm than good to my department, organization and/or employees. I need to be cognizant of the fact that I do not have all the answers and that there is nothing wrong with asking others for assistance. Allowing others into the assembly does not mean that I am a poor manager; what this means is that I am not perfect and that I sometimes need to step back from a situation to get the proper perspective from someone else’s guidance and counseling.
For me relinquishing authority is extremely difficult to do because I sometimes believe that I have the answer to every issue. But after hearing many of the discussions and reading the materials that I have researched I am learning that giving the reigns to someone else is the best decision for all of the parties involved.
Yes, I agree with the summary given below.
At times, it may be necessary for managers to seek information and guidance from others. There may be tendency among managers to get biased and in order to provide guidance and solutions which are unbiased, it is necessary for the managers to seek conversations with others which would help in arriving at a decision regarding the problem employee.
Asking information from other people about the issues involving the problem employee would only help in accessing relevant information to the case and arriving at a informed decision. Managers should not hesitate to speak to as many people as possible who would be willing to offer any information relevant to the issue at hand. The manager should not feel any guilt in seeking help and guidance from others.
