Ep. 276: “Lead Together” – Co-Creating More Effective Work Environments by Sharing Power in Decision-Making with Author Tania Luna

Tania Luna is a psychology researcher, educator and author of the book “Lead Together: Stop Squirreling Away Power and Build a Better Team” in which she tells a story about the concepts of power, leadership, and the impact of shared decision-making in the workplace. Mike Petrusky asks Tania to discuss her research, leadership experiences, and the four principles of sharing power including how we can “rely on context, not control”. Tania believes that leaders must clarify the “why” rather than dictating the “how” and advises that when people have context, they have the information they need to take action and make good decisions. Mike and Tania explore how these concepts apply to the power struggle between leadership and employees in our post-pandemic workplace and they offer practical advice for facility management leaders as they seek to navigate changing office dynamics. Listen to this conversation for ideas that will inspire you to be a Workplace Innovator in your organization!
