Presentation for the Professional Women's Association (PWA) Conference at UCSB.
As a manager, our tendency is to believe we must “have it all figured out” in order to provide clear direction to our teams. But, what happens if we engage our staff in ideation and planning for our projects? This approach creates a broader range of possibilities, lifts the sole burden of decision making from the manager, and inspires ownership and sense of purpose to provide more job satisfaction among our staff. This hands on workshop will demonstrate the power of leveraging the unique talents of your team and some practical methods for bringing them together to create more robust, innovative, and diverse solutions.
