We in management could use a good reminder of how people work from time to time. If we are not careful, we can lapse into a harmful mindset which results in low morale and a poor overall work environment. There is just so much to be done, that we occasionally lose discipline in terms of the effect of our actions on those around us.

As your reminder today, here is an article from Inc. by Geoffrey James, which does not offer any groundbreaking material, but serves that purpose quite well.

The following quote in particular – under the fourth heading entitled “Employees are my peers, not my children,” – is particularly good; “Excellence is expected everywhere, from the loading dock to the boardroom. As a result, employees at all levels take charge of their own destinies.”

Also of note is that not everyone that achieves success in business follows this guide. However, it depends on how you define success. For me, the “core beliefs” in the article are the only way to achieve what the TPS Report would consider to be success.
