Coaching – The New Word in Management

The Old Way – Command and Control Although workplaces and management styles have come a long way in the last decade, the command and control style of management behaviour remains common practice in many companies. This management approach basically means that employees are told exactly what to do, when to do it and even how it should be done. The manager is in charge, has all the answers, and fixes all the problems. It's no surprise that plenty of people find this approach demotivating, and ...more

Balance Your Managerial Life

We have only one life, but we live in three overlapping worlds—our business world, our family world, and our other social world. Imagine bringing your spouse and kids to a meeting with seven of your salespersonnel. Sitting off to your left, Miss Wright asks the question on the minds of all her fellow sales colleagues, "Why did you bring your family to our meeting today? Will they be playing any sort of role in our discussion?" You simply respond, "No, they're just here so I can tend to their ...more

How to Plan for More Time and Have Time for More Planning

It is important to realize that the title of this article could have been written the other way around, and while at the surface it may seem as stating the same thing, this is the illusion that most people are deceived by and hence therefore are doing less with more, instead of more with less. Now let me clarify, this to another level. Most people complain about "Well if I had more time, then I could really plan my days!" Yet this approach will never allow you to have that time, therefore no p ...more

The Three Factors Of Leadership Motivation

========================================Three Factors Of Leadership Motivation by Brent Filson Leaders do nothing more important than get results. But you can't get results by yourself. You need others to help you do it. And the best way to have other people get results is not by ordering them but motivating them.

Leading from the Inside Out: The Power of Deep Blue Leadership

One of the most profound and difficult aspects of leadership is instilling in individuals deeply held, and yet generally shared principles to motivate a common purpose. Leading by influencing one's sense of identity and purpose is both powerful and mysterious. Like the deep blue sea, it is also a source of energy and diversity. In this first of twelve articles exploring the spectrum of leadership influence, I address the question: what exactly is deep blue leadership? The Story Part 1: The Con ...more

Build Your Business (on a shoestring): Hire a College Intern

Starting up a new venture or business can be one of the most exciting times of your life. It can also be one of the most stressful. In the early months, or even early years of your business, cash flow is often not what you would like it to be. If you're a solo entrepreneur, you're wearing many hats – in fact, you're probably wearing all of them. Not only are you selling your product or service, you're marketing it, doing the accounting, paying the bills, answering the phones, designing and ...more

Emergency! Gas Fire!

Woooooooo……Woooo………The siren sounded. All of us looked at each other with excitement. The time has come for us to go into action. >From all over the building, we can see Emergency Response Team members coming out, some looking a bit dazed. A general alarm had been sounded and the ERT has been activated! At the command post, the "Commander" quickly briefed all the ERT members about the situation. There was a fire at the LPG storage tank, and there was an urgent need to put out the f ...more

Attacked in the Jungle!

"Tak kenak! Tak kenak!" "Adak Orang sanak!…………" The quiet jungle has suddenly become noisy with intruders. Strange voices and shouting seemed to appear all around us. They were definitely foreign. We were being attacked! We had been expecting an attack, but we did not expect it so soon. We did everything possible to protect ourselves, but the only cover we had were some bushes, tree trunks, leaves and the natural foliage. If we protect ourselves from the front, we could not cover ou ...more

Be Careful Who You Condemn

We all know customers are not always right – in fact – often they're completely wrong. But if we allow our customers' "shortcomings" to be the focus of our employees' attentions we're destined to fail. The inclination to complain about a customer happens to all of us from time to time. After a customer irritates us in some way and eventually walks away or hangs up the phone, we immediately look for a nearby co-worker so we can share our negative experiences. "Hey Bob. You won't believe th ...more

Eight Ways to Motivate Part Time Employees by Ed Sykes ©2004 In most cases, part-time employees present a special challenge when it comes to motivation.
