4 Levels of Authority

Responsibility WITHOUT the right level of authority to make decisions or act only leads to frustration, DISENGAGED PEOPLE AND POOR performance. To avoid this, distribute these 4 levels of authority, as they are earned and appropriate to the position and for the person:

AUTHORITY LEVEL I

The person in the role has the authority to act WITHOUT any contact with the Team Leader prior to the action. This is called a ‘JUST DO IT’ authority level

AUTHORITY LEVEL II

The individual in the role has the authority to act but MUST notify the Team Leader immediately AFTER the action is taken. This is called a  TELL ME AFTER Authority

AUTHORITY LEVEL III

The person in the role has the authority to act but MUST notify the Team Leader BEFORE action is taken. This is a TELL ME BEFORE Authority

AUTHORITY LEVEL IV

The individual in the role has the authority to analyze and make recommendations to your Team Leader for approval.  This is a MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS Authority

Use these four levels of authority for CLARITY and GENUINE accountability that will keep your people ENGAGED, HIGHLY motivated and FULLY equipped to execute THEIR plans

MAKE IT HAPPEN.
