First, the don’ts!
It is understandable that being the head of a corporate entity leaves you with the responsibility of having to delegate tasks appropriately. However, it is unacceptable to attempt to control every aspect of how a high-skilled employee executes his assigned work.
Unless the personnel
in-charge of your business’s operations are all engaged through the freelance route or have consistently failed to apply their expertise to move your business forward, there is no excuse for you to meddle into how they carry out their functions.
Now, the dos!
It just doesn’t make sense to hire smart people and tell them exactly what to do because the quality of their work will suffer and your business with bear the brunt of the unpleasant outcome. Since most hired experts usually have the experience and the skills to back their expertise, it behoves of you as the owner and manager of the business to give some leeway to such experts.
Whether you hire freelancers from top freelancing sites or utilize in-house personnel, the high skilled hires are intelligent individuals who form the backbone of your company.
You must endeavour to keep these experts happy otherwise you risk a losing them to a more than willing competitor. One good way to keep a highly skilled employee happy is to build trust with the person. By entrusting a critical task to the expert without petty meddling, you’re giving the individual a sense of responsibility.
An apparent way to ensure that your personnel remains committed to the business project is by compensating them with excellent remunerations. Most often, employees who are satisfied with their pay package usually end up being the most productive, and those who struggle with insufficient wages often see the quality of their work suffer.
If you can ensure to treat your high-profile personnel well, you can be sure that they will consider themselves as valuable members of your company, and will hence, do their absolute best on any task assigned to them.
If you wish to run a business successfully, you must know where the line of authority ends regarding your employees and also do everything to avoid stepping over it.
