Management a decade ago was carrot or whip. Place a carrot out there for employees to chase or whip from behind and threaten to get what you want. Either way, it’s a jaded, outdated style where the employees work for you and you’re the master manipulator.
Hear me loud on this – to succeed in “management” in 2018 (better called leadership), you work for those people reporting to you. Again, you work for them. Top down culture. Got it?
Ego severely limits your upside in today’s economy. Humility is where it’s at. And the higher and higher you go up the ladder, the more humility you need to deploy. To where all the way at the top, you’re very aware that you’re working FOR a whole lot of people.
They don’t work for you; you work for them.
Humility not ego.
Change your mindset for 2018. Because you deserve it and I know they deserve it too.
