Force and mind are opposites; morality ends where a gun begins
- Ayu Rand
A good number of manager erroneously think that people just hate to work. They think that they have to drive their staff like cattle to make them work. However, this notion is wrong. People tend to work effectively when they are treated like human beings, given responsibilities and recognized.
Some of the reasons why people don’t work effectively include: personal worries, poor relationship with other staff, lack of information, poor supervision, fear, bad working condition etc. What a good manager does is that, he/she gets to know his subordinates well enough and tries to meet both organizational and individual needs of his staff.Managers, to handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart
The TRUE leadership is when a manager ensures that the team Trusts, Respects, Understands and Enjoys each other.
If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
- Antoine de Saint-Exupery
