Would You Do This?

August 2, 2012

I read an interesting article about developing Vs. managing people this morning. It tied to an interesting conversation I had with a new manager yesterday who asked me, “Is teaching them part of MY job? Shouldn’t they know how to do their job if they were placed in that job?”

My answer?

“Anything that gets you the results you want is part of YOUR job. If sweeping the hallway improved results and morale, wouldn’t you do it? I would.”

The tougher things get, the more you will have to do to survive in business. Why let pride get in your way? Do those extra things now and you’ll be reaping rewards while your competitors scramble.
