Being an Enabler

As a leader, how do you serve as an enabler for your staff? 

As a leader, one of your key roles is to serve as an enabler for your staff.  You need to enable your staff to do their work to the best of their ability.  You do this by ensuring they have:

  • the tools they need
  • the knowledge they need
  • the skills they need
  • a workplace that supports their mental and emotional well-being
  • clarity of purpose in their work
  • a belief that their work has value
  • freedom from distracters
  • protection from activity traps
  • easy access to you
  • problem-resolving processes
  • ...and on the list goes....
This list - and all of the other things that could be added to it - demands a significant skill set on your part.  How do you build and refine the skills you need to be a leader who enables others to do their best work?
