The Secrets of Management

If you want to be a successful manager, you have to like, and be able to motivate people. It is a truth that a team can do more than any one gifted individual. Picking the right team is the secret.

One thing I have learned from years in business is that recruitment is a key component of business success. Look for personalities that will work on your team. You can teach skills, but you can't change someones personality. Nothing destroys team morale more than having a primadonna or a non team player come into the team.

Choose your staff wisely, nurture them, play to their respective strengths within a high performing team and you will achieve success.

Business is about Relationships

The success of your business ventures depends on having health relationships. These relationships may be with suppliers, customers, staff, co-workers, management...the list goes on. If you can't get the person skills right it is unlikely that you will make much headway. Business life is full of hidden traps to those who only chase the mighty dollar and take the "Greed is Good" path.

Treat others as you like to be treated. Be kind, friendly and treat everyone as your equals. This kind of approach pays huge dividends. As our latest economic crisis shows, just focusing on growth and financial wizardry does not work. We need sustanable businesses that meet real not engineered needs.

Keep well.

The Challenge Roller Coaster

I am on a new project (6 weeks in) and we are having a roller coaster of exhiliration. You kbnow what I mean, 3 hours of terror, a sleepless night, and then a great idea of a solution in the next week. I have to say that I love this kind of environment. It keeps you on your toes and keeps the skill uptake and problem solving faculties working. Challenge always brings growth.
