It's tempting to think of knowledge as power, and that the more we keep to ourselves, the more authority, importance, and responsibility we have. But is that really an effective way to work?
This is a story of two bosses, one who hoards information in order to guarantee his authority, and one who shares it with his employees. There are two attitudes at work here: one characterized by power, the other by trust. As an employee, which would you respond to?
Clearly, people respond to trust. If you give it to them, they will instinctively want to live up to it. If they don't feel valued or respected, their work will suffer. Beyond that, aren't we called to respect all men as children of God? Cultivating an open, collaborative work environment makes good business sense, but even more importantly...it is part of the high calling of our daily work.
TheHighCalling.org seeks to create opportunities for Christian leaders to encounter God through new media tools for the transformation of daily life, work, and our world. Christian leaders are in all aspects and activities of daily life—including home, community, leisure, as well as occupation.
