If we spend so much time on action plan, and spend littile time on telling the team members of our vision, measurable milestones, and the meaning of the work,  they will only do what is needed to be done.

"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the sea."
-- Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Sometimes managers complain that the people working with them, or those of other departments, are not involved enough in the business and do not show enthusiasm about their work. These managers often say that some employees "just don't care."

Successful leadership is one that enables people to exercise and enjoy greater freedom at work. The more freedom to decide how to do one's work to achieve the defined objectives the more involved and energetic the employee is.
