Do your employees avoid taking responsibility? Do they seem to spend more time fixing blame and finger pointing than solving problems? Do they think for themselves?

• Know how to make it clear when people should act alone and when to seek supervision
• Define the critical difference between authority and responsibility
• Know techniques for hiring ‘self-starters’
