The Slippery Slope of Outsourcing Managerial Leadership
Effective managerial leadership is a critical component of strategy execution. It is no coincidence that organizations have watched employee accountability and engagement erode as managerial authority has been systematically extracted from line managers and outsourced to human resources.
Although well intentioned, the trend toward outsourcing increasing components of managers’ “people work” has resulted in impotent managers and disengaged employees. Managers don’t need to be relieved of their managerial accountabilities; they simply need a sane-making, integrated management system that equips and supports them in carrying out their accountabilities.
