Soft skills: Smart skills for Organizations
Appreciate the roles of others
Give credit where it is due. Appreciating what others have contributed will enhance their loyalty and increase the chances of continuing to do the work that brought the appropriation to begin with. Be specific, timely and concrete when you appreciate others. At different stages of the Organization’s growth, different ways of appreciation become necessary. When you appreciate people in different ways, be cautious about fairness and appropriateness.
Delegate, delegate and delegate some more. It shows that you really appreciate what they can do and it communicates your ability to trust. Delegating to them means that you have one less task to complete,and you know that it will be done well. The attitude that “nothing gets done here without me…” fails to appreciate the roles that others play in the organization.
