Job Design

“The twin sister to autonomy and freedom is responsibility and accountability. If someone is given an area of responsibility, not only must they be set free to do it, they must also be held accountable for what they do.” – Henry Cloud

So often the reason why people are miserable in their jobs and perform their jobs poorly is because those jobs are poorly designed. Job design is a basic management principle, but it uncommon enough that it often takes a leader to do it.



Designing jobs

It is one thing to follow principles of job design. It is another thing to design them with compassion, courage, curiosity, and ambition. It is yet another thing to give employees a chance to craft their jobs as well.
