Autonomy in the Workplace

Assignment: Autonomy in the Workplace

Management should be more about enabling employees to be successful rather than overseeing their every move. When more direct supervision is warranted, managers must attempt to strike a balance somewhere between complete autonomy and micromanagement.

Post a cohesive and scholarly response based on this week’s content and your own research that addresses the following:
o What are the risks of allowing others to be autonomous? What are the benefits?
o What procedures would need to be put in place to ensure that assignments are still being completed?
o What happens when your employees are educated in a Type X environment? As a manager, how can you help them succeed in a Type I environment? Be specific.

DO NOT include an introduction or conclusion; only discuss the three sections above. Provide 2 APA.
