Here’s a post you might want to print out and slip under your boss’ door.
David Zinger, who is an employee engagement expert (whatever that means) has a tongue in cheek list called 37 Unhabits of Highly Successful Managers. Some of the gems:
- Watch NBC’s The Office to uncover new management techniques and principles to put into practice with your staff.
- If people say you are not listening to them say, “I understand and I know how you feel.”
- Micromanage your people because you are a detail person.
- Refer to the people who work for you as human resources or human capital rather than living breathing complex people.
If you ever find yourself in a position of management over other people, you might want to keep this list handy to remember what NOT to do.
