Teams who are empowered are more open to change! (BSBWOR502 Lead and Manage Team Effectiveness)
Benefits of involving the team:
Involving the team in decision making empowers the team and demonstrates that they are valued. It helps to focus on goals rather than day to day tasks. Teams who are empowered in this way tend to be more open to change, innovative and creative.
Disadvantages of not involving the team:
If a manager “imposes decisions from above” then the team will not feel valued or empowered. In effect, this approach implies that the team’s opinions are not worth having.
Write your thoughts or share your experiences on the advantages of involving the team and/or the disadvantages of not involving the team.
