Deprive people of control at work, and they become more controlling at home. But give people choices about what to work on — or how, when and where to do it — and they become better parents. Creating jobs that allow for self-direction, for independent thought and judgment, can make people more supportive and flexible at home.
最近已經有很多實例指出賦予員工更多自由、彈性和責任能夠獲得更大的員工和客戶滿意度，現在又有了一個新的好處，讓這些員工能夠成爲更好的家長。作者 Adam Grant 認爲我們迫切需要一個更少規則導向、更多技能導向的工作體系，要勇敢的對前人留下來的有毒管理方式說不：
Granting people freedom on the job is a moral responsibility. When we micromanage like the boss in “Office Space,” we aren’t just robbing them of their dignity. We’re robbing their children of their potential. That vicious cycle can end when we refuse to pass on a toxic legacy. When we have a controlling parent or a controlling boss, it’s up to all of us to take a stand and say, “It stops here, today.”
