HOW IT WORKS
- All 4 factors must be in place and operational. This is not a static model, it is an interactive process.
- It is very important to recognize who has primary responsibility for each component of the model:
- WILLING… Primary responsibility belongs to the employee. He/she has to choose to be motivated and desire to pursue the possibilities. However, the manager plays a large part in how he/she nurtures, encourages, and coaches the individual.
- ABLE… Both the manager and employee share responsibility, this should be a collaborative effort. The manager and employee take into consideration the skills required for both the work and the individual’s aspirations for future growth and opportunities.
- ALLOWED… Primary responsibility belongs to the manager. There is a certain amount of ‘freedom’ and trust that must be demonstrated by the manager.
- ACCOUNTABLE… The manager has the primary role in this area. Holding the employee accountable is important to ensuring the follow-through and success of the individual.
