20 May Person Not Position
So many companies are stuck in the mindset of the industrial revolution. A person is looked at merely as a cog in a wheel or a process on an assembly line. Those days are gone and companies/organizations need to look at people as valuable assets and not a replaceable position.
Leaders often lead like coaches and look at a team as a whole. It’s a win or lose effort. Celebrate or discipline individuals, this isn’t pee-wee football.
Since we’re on the sports analogy. Make sure you don’t dress up your football players in baseball gear, throw them out on the field and expect them to play soccer. Have the right people playing the right “sport” and in the right position and acknowledge their INDIVIDUAL accomplishments. Gone are the days of the mindless factory worker. Quit running your business like it’s still 1955.
