When I started my career I was taught “to hurry and gain the experience and prove my worth.” I was working for corporations and the idea was “wait for your boss to tell you what to do”. Sounds familiar?
I think companies that are successfully managing the rapid change we are experiencing around the world, are the companies that equip their people to make decisions. If your people are waiting to be told what to do, there is no way you will be able to manage the complexity and ensure that the right decisions can be made. The only way to lead is to delegate power.
