We’ve talked about how to “Effectively Prune” to activate and inspire our workplace AND workforce to further grow and develop employees. Now it’s time to talk about how to use management to grow instead of control, focus on people in addition to results, and be vision driven instead of a problem solver. This leads to growth and new directions as opposed to staying rooted in the current problems.
