KPCB Partner, Randy Komisar talks about Entrepreneurial Management 101: Power to the People at KPCB's 12 to 200 CEO Workshop, a conference on growing entrepreneurial businesses, held in Stanford, California on July 16, 2013.

You need to create environments that empower your people.

Today, when recruiting, you hear a lot about autonomy, they want control, deciding how to spend their time...you've got to have a balance between giving people the freedom to take care of their lives and their priorities in the context of their work, and also unifying the team. Frederick Taylor would roll over in his grave.

There are simple things you can do. Make sure your group meetings are in the middle of the day. Not in the early morning when someone is sending their kids off to school, or late in the day when somebody should be getting together with their family to have dinner. And keep all meetings short, people will fill the time so make it tight. The best ideas have a way of coming out first anyway. Make sure that attending meetings is not a status symbol, its a chore and people should be happy to have a small group address the issues on their behalf while they are doing the work that is most important. Make them accountable, but don't try to make them punch a clock. That's what we're looking for in this creative economy. People want that freedom -- and at the same time we have to build common effort and common purpose as a team. Simple things allow that to happen.
