There exist as many arguments surrounding success as the ‘specialists’ pushing them. Every ‘sage on the stage’ propounds his/her personal account of success with a formula that appears clear yet uncertain of bringing one to the aspired objective.
What do we do when confronted with a challenge? There exist so many possibilities depending upon a distinct task or situation. The mismatch between assumptions and performance causes unsightly fireworks.
Both organizations and employees commit themselves to a written Code of Conduct. They need to remember the accepted etiquette for human coöperation as strongly. The minute someone dares cross the fine line, the results are often liable to be undesirable. The instigating employee could be deprived of his/her position. Or a whole group could become liable to the executive, with its future on the line.
Where the administration itself crosses the fine line, subordinates come down with their own response in a befitting fashion. The growing sense of resistance in the workforce leads to a lack of production. It could be awkward to establish the fault of one specific member of the executive team without hostility from the others.
Do you wish to limit discontent on either side? Is that feasible? You bet!
Please allow me to shed light on these four pillars of progress in the life of a decision-maker:
Respect: It can only be commanded and never demanded. In its natural form, respect is the double-edged sword that can either bridge communication gaps or destroy bonds of understanding. What goes around comes around. Respect everyone as much as your own self and you will form bonds of close harmony and care. Disrespect one human being and count on the identical treatment meted out to you by myriads. Why, because bad news travels much quicker than the good! Whether you are the chief or the lower level employee, acting gentle and respectful is eternally effective. Showing disrespect to your subordinates will be inadequate to obtain a good answer from those under your command. Disrespect to those senior will contribute to your abrupt exit.
