Express yourself

I am still committed to the idea of the workplace as somewhere for creative expression.

Not artistic or musical or anything like that, and perhaps intensely corporate, but where individuals are afforded the opportunity to express and develop their ideas. And through this comes true personal development.

Over the years I have seen that whenever members of  team are given the freedom and autonomy to develop solutions to problems, the end results are of a higher quality.

And any time I hear a (micro) manager say that you can’t have everyone going off doing their own thing all the time, I know that that is someone who seeks control and actively tries to inhibit realisation of potential.
