This doesn’t mean your staff is making decisions for you; what I’m suggesting is that by involving your people in the process that leads up to your decision, you’ll have them working with you rather than accepting new systems imposed on them.

By insisting on perfection, you may in fact defeat your own purposes. Some employees will become so self-conscious about making a mistake that they slow their performance down to a crawl to make absolutely certain they don’t screw up.

Determine what you can about the processes that led to the decision. The old philosophy of following the leader blindly no longer holds in today’s management circles.
