Managing a tough subordinate is not all that easy. The two words here that rings alarm bells here are “Subordinate” and “Tough”.
Now, putting some one into place is easy but, some points to remember before confronting your subordinate would be,
1. Does your subordinate like you or respect you as his/her boss?
2. Is your subordinate touchy?
3. Has the same issue been addressed earlier with the same person?
4. Is your subordinate adding value to your organization or is he/she a good worker?
Today, when every one is has very busy schedule but the no. of works not decreasing even they increase day by day. so many people want a way that provide How to get things done at work?
As i think there is some tips which can make it very easy to get work done.
1) Prioritize & break down work in samll segemnts if necessary
2) Chart down the list of people who can help u get the work/work segments done faster
3) Think why each of these people will help accomplish the work….i.e what’s in it for them list
In keeping with the encouraging reply by admin, I have decided to post another good management lesson.
A turkey used to see an eagle sitting up a tree daily and wanted to get to that high spot. The turkey told about this to the cow. The cow told the turkey that if the turkey nibbled on some of his (the cow’s) droppings which were packed with nutrients he will get the strength and energy to reach the top of the tree. The turkey nibbled on the droppings daily and was able to scale the tree daily with more height each day. Finally the turkey was able to reach the top of the tree. Soon a hunter spotted the turkey on the treetop and shot the bird down.
The moral of this story? Bullshit might be able to get you to the top but it will not keep you there!!
I have read a management joke some time back and am not sure if it is on the public domains. Nevertheless I decided to blog it here with the hope that some of you might not have read it or heard about it.
A raven was flying south to avoid the winter. On the way the bird was so tired that it fell down to the ground on the snow and lay there freezing. Soon a passing cow happened to dump some dung on the bird. Now the dung actually began to keep the little bird warm and the bird started to sing in joy.
A little while later a cat that was psssing by heard the sound, explored in the dung and dug out the bird. Promptly the cat ate the bird and left contented.
What’s the moral of this story?
1. Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
