Let your people run with the ball

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

Ritz-Carlton President and COO Simon Cooper has a simple way of helping his people develop their leadership abilities.

When someone has an idea and says “We can do it,” Cooper allows that person to lead the process, provided that he or she can develop a workable strategy.

Turning over ownership of an idea to its creator is a deceptively simple way to build leadership from below. Consider: If you’ve ever had a great idea and lost control of it to someone who outranks you, you know how tempting it can be to keep your next big idea to yourself … and seek new opportunities elsewhere.
