Managing Dickheads

Written by Arvind kumar

“We are so different and individualistic that we can’t work together.” Subroto Bag chi, a senior executive in wipro technologies and Indian Technology MNC, said to his chairman in a straight talk. But Premji,repparttar chairman, simple reply torepparttar 151145 statement was, “That’s because we should work together.” High performers are very erratic, individualistic, and egoistic in nature. Less experience senior management team would think only negative characters in them, a destroyer, keen to break well defined rules, unreasonable, a person who can’t take a company to its goal. Is that true in real world? Just to name a few Louis Gerstner, Steve jobs, Larry Ellison, Richard Branson, Henry ford etc. These super human just can not be defined by any lexicon. You make a study on one and other will take 180° turn torepparttar 151146 table on that definition.

Super performers are always at 180° of any defined personality. To work with these kind of people a whole new set of skill, are required and managing a group of super performers is a job only suitable to a similar devil.

But wait for a second; does all these disqualification make these high performers unsuitable for a place in your team? Think again, can your team live without these out of box thinker. Answer is yes.

A major portion of any team are made of media are managers. Team still perform (obviously in relative sense) But put one these 180° spit firing performers, you run a speeding speedboat we can winrepparttar 151147 race or get topped down in matter of time. But you will be agree with me that only a speedboat can winrepparttar 151148 race, not a two boat. Your only function (mind it, a devils job it is) to sit onrepparttar 151149 stirring and keeprepparttar 151150 synergy of all system working together to achieverepparttar 151151 required result.

How to manage your most valuable assets - people?

Written by Philip Lye

People management and leadership has become a major topic of conversation in today’s market place and have assumed mythical qualities. Managing you people is not that difficult if you are willing to invest one thing in their development; YOU. The emotional cost and some simple training and mentoring can see you be a successful leader and manager.

As a previous CEO of companies (before starting Biz Momentum) I proved this time and time again and often baffled and confounded those that wanted to makerepparttar whole leadership thing complicated!

What’s it all about!!

1. Managing your people is largely COMMON SENSE

2. Leaders don't wait for others to showrepparttar 151094 way.

3. Leaders participate inrepparttar 151095 workplace and are seen doingrepparttar 151096 hard yards, leading by example we used to call it.

4. Leaders inspire other people through authenticity (Random Acts of Kindness, Mentors not Tormentors)

5. Leaders know their people - Mother Teresa tookrepparttar 151097 time to know her 700 sisters? It’s all about choice. As for your people, do you now their partners and children’s names? do you know what is important to them?

A Metaphor - Motor Vehicle - How do you treat your car?

Most people put more positive effort into servicing their motor vehicles than takingrepparttar 151098 time to fine-tune their employees.

• Get to know your car • Get used to driving it • Servicing it • Recognisingrepparttar 151099 different noises – timing chain • Know when its time to replace, upgrade or keep it

A. What has this to do with employees?
