The Way of the Beaver: In Control of
Achieving the Goal
Way of the Beaver is applied to people by giving them control over how the
goal is achieved. The role of the leader is to establish the framework through
setting the key goals and values. You define the playing field, and the rules
of the game, you decide who plays what position, then you have to get off the
field and let the players move the ball. The players have to know that as long
as they follow the rules they can go anywhere within the lines. They have to
know that as long as the ball is in play, you will keep off the field.
Production expectations should be within reach, but challenging, demanding
peoples best. It is demeaning to expect far less than people are capable of
producing, they want to do fair work for fair pay.
