What does it mean to take initiative? Is it just looking at what’s needed and taking the action? Well, it’s more than that.

There’s 2 pieces to taking initiative:

  1. Thinking strategically: asking the right questions, determining solutions.
  2. Feeling empowered to take action: external permissions, company culture that supports these decisions.

Having an employee who takes initiative, solves problems, and thinks critically is gold. Having a company culture where taking initiative is modeled and encouraged allows the organization to thrive.  Listen in as Dawn defines strategic thinking, and discusses company culture.
