U.S. office workers get interrupted on the job as often as 11 times an hour, costing as much as $588 billion to U.S. business each year.
"But what if my workers need me every second of every day of every freakin' year?!"Two things could happen:
You haven't tried "letting go."People -- that is, good people -- want independence to discover the best route to a destination you/your-company/your-client has set. When you dictate that route, you trash their creativity -- and in turn: drain their productivity.
You hired the wrong person.If the person needs constant hand-holding, you probably need somebody else. A person that needs babysitting will drain your time, resources, and hurt company-wide results.
"I will let go."
