Helping people take more initiative

The only way people can learn to take more initiative in their work is to be given more freedom to take initiative. It is the work of leaders to make a habit of reminding people where they have freedom to take initiative. This makes work more mindful and therefore more meaningful.  This is also the work of creating more opportunities for people to take intitiave. People get better at it through practice.

Initiative taking accelerates performance and learning.
