You do need to be in control of your organization, but it doesn’t mean you need to control people. Besides, the hierarchical pyramid creates an illusion of control over people and results for those at the top of the organization. The unnecessary control systems we use to prevent damage by a small portion of employees winds up harming the remaining who are innocent. Is that wise? Of course, we aren’t suggesting you get rid of all controls overnight, for it could create chaos. But, how about exploring alternative controls and a minimum level of procedures that give more autonomy to your people and add value to the business?
