Most organisations are guilty of wasting their employees' potential by failing to support them with pursuing ideas.
If you are a leader in an organisation, then you likely have a bottleneck of ideas.
You have access to lots of smart people with ideas for improving how the business works and delivers value to customer, but very few of these translate into reality.
This is frustrating and disengaging for employees. As leaders, it is disappointing to fail our people and inhibit our business growth by not empowering employees.
Worse yet, we are wasting the potential of our people and our organisation by failing to support the translation of employee ideas into business outcomes.
Luckily, as leaders, we can change. If you want to begin alleviating your bottleneck of ideas start by giving your people clear steps on how to pitch their ideas at work.
We recommend using the Press Release/FAQ tool. Announce to your team that they can pitch any idea for improvements within the company and to do so they must fill out a template Press Release & FAQ which you will review.
As you review the PR/FAQs and select ideas worth exploring, give the team that pitched the idea permission to work on it and lead it - they are the natural champions and deserve the opportunity to be a leader of the initiative.
