How to Stop Micromanaging Your Team
(Entrepreneur) — Commit to hiring the right people. It’s much easier to create a culture of accountability with accountable people. At RadioFlyer, the famous maker of children’s wagons, accountability is a core value central to finding new employees. Prospective job candidates are screened on whether they proactively seek needed information and feedback, and whether they strive to accomplish team goals. The company remains doggedly loyal to this value, going so far to keep positions open for more than a year if they are unable to find an ideal match between the candidate, the culture and the position. Additionally, all 55 of RadioFlyers’s employees, hiring managers and the executive team receive training on the selection process annually.
