📚 The article of the week: 3 signs your team doesn’t have an ownership mindset and what to do about it

The article talks about the dangers of not empowering your teams to feel responsible and take decisions. Prior to the Chernobyl disaster operators informed management that the condition wasn't right for the test they were asked to do. However, they were overruled by a manager whose agenda was completely different. And we all know the level of destruction that this caused.

Often we talk about team members being empowered to take ownership. But often this is seen as a stigma. What many managers mean when giving ownership to an individual or team is that you are to deliver the work and respond if things go wrong. But the critical bit is often omitted or excluded which is decision-making empowerment.

This article talks about the clear signs the team is disengaged and feels no responsibility towards the work and ways to correct it. Learn how to help your team own the work they carry on freeing you up for the big-picture strategy.
