Leadership and People Management

Challenge and Freedom

Print Share
Imagine your boss comes up and hands you a stack of documents, asks you to tackle a complex problem, and then leaves you to get on with it -- but not without being convinced that you are capable of coming up with a solution. This encapsulates how the late IESE professor Josep Riverola envisaged that employees should be treated: as people, first and foremost, who must be given challenges and then sufficient freedom so they can work out for themselves how to overcome those challenges and grow.
