Growing Potential CEO, Otto Henfling, recently presented ‘The Benefits of Leaders Trusting Their Followers’ at the Australian & New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) in Auckland.
Otto reports on the analysis of six critical reflections written by a CEO from an Australian not-for-profit organisation using an autoethnographic methodology. The findings reveal that having trust in followers led to improved communication and more responsibility being delegated to the follower.
Otto instils that “Trusting your followers has a number of benefits in the workplace such as improved communication, increased self-esteem and high levels of co-operation and performance within the team.”
We’re proud to have a CEO who avidly leads our company and our child, family and community services with this philosophy.
