It is quite important to get clear goals set up and an understanding of how to really achieve them well enough.
This means being objective and having the ability to remove your ego and also the prejudices you've got. Even if you don't approve of their ways, their approach, or don't enjoy one another, it is still possible to respect every particular person who does his job.
You'll work efficiently and diligently, becoming a superb case of professionalism.
This helps to keep an expert attitude on the job. There's a likelihood the word will go out, as well as your credibility as a manager will always be regularly questioned.
Globalization has caused multicultural workplaces throughout the world.
This is particularly true in the event of multicultural workplaces.
All employees need to understand the competitive and moral benefits of diversity. Keeping up a superior level professionalism at work will not mean that you want to appear to be devoid of any human emotion.
That is really what teamwork is going to do. Repeat the exact same exercise with all of your employees. At times it works, at times it doesn't.
But what matters is to ensure that employees are engaged and see you work hard to develop them, through workshops and regular trainings (corporate or on the job).
On the other hand, you'll never make everyone happy, as we don't live in an ideal world.
If you truly want to learn ways to get respect from people, you should earn it first.
You need to respect the fact that, as an employer, employees acknowledge that you consider them trustworthy, and it is your responsibility to maintain with that specific faith they have in you.
This is a great method of building relationships that can stand one in decent stead.
The consequences could be grave in the event the employee loses their patience:
You will lose any amount of respect you hardly earned week after week, month after month; and regain it will be almost mission impossible!
To avoid employees to lose their patience, you need always to be true to your word, show them respect (you don't have to like everyone, but you must respect everyone - including the 'difficult cases'), and show them that their opinion really matters.
In the event the employees are friends with one another, obviously they'll work better with one another, and their level of dedication will increase.
On the other hand, as soon as 'things turn bad', they might easily regroup against you as a manager.
What to do then?
Don't be afraid to develop a stress-free, friendly work environment (avoid family members still!) in order for every employee to feel confident to express their better selves to the benefit of your organization.
Nevertheless, keep in mind that a 'stress-free environment' does not mean a stress-free life for you, the manager; quite the opposite.
It takes a lot of work and dedication to develop a long-lasting, positive stress-free work environment and maintain it at a high level.
(We'll discuss that in a future post)
Because we are all different, we all developed particular ways or techniques to take care of challenging situations.
This is due also to the fact that, because of who we are and how experience we are, we developed an extremely great difference in perception.
Some people are inclined to embellish or exaggerate; others to make things worst than they are.
It means we rarely see issues as they really are, going through the filters of our past experiences, education (parental and at school), and so many more parameters we are not even conscious of!
That's the reason why as much as possible, we should always consult our colleagues - and even subordinates when applicable - and ask them to advise us on a particular issue.
Multitasking as an easy escape
Most of us want to multitask on various projects at the similar time.
That is clearly a lot simpler than hiring people with the proper skills.
It also looks a lot cheaper.
But have you even considered the cost of a poorly managed multitasking?
Lost hours, unhappy customers and colleagues, loss of business, work poorly completed that leads to frustration, etc.
When you add up all these costs, are you sure your multitasking strategy makes sense?e to edit.
