What kind of General manager are you ! ( a lion or a teddy bear )

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Perception1I have encounter many general managers  in my life ! Boy some were puppets that was waiting for answer and directive from upper management and some took matters in their own hands ! But witch one are you ! There are 2 choices a lion or a teddy bear !

Situation upper management are making bad choices on top bad choices they hire you to clean the place up !  they give you no leverage what so ever !!!  

Here are the major differences between both !

 

Lion : – makes clean cut decisions and stands by them what ever the consequences !

             – Has respect from the president because he knows hats he is doing  !

             – Always fights for good employees  when needed !

             – He keeps an atmosphere of work pleasant and gives pats on backs to thanks employees !

 

Teddy bear : – waits for decision from upper management never takes initiative of his own not to unplease upper management !

                           - Says to employees after a decision its me who took this decision to try to get respect from employees ! 

                           - always gets pass thru a grinder by upper management for their bad decisions !

                          -  He his always in a ejection seat !

                         -  Never fights for his employees in front of the boss ! but after the president is gone says he did !

 

So the lesson here is do your job show and get the  respect that you deserve !

Is your Boss always firing his employees or himself !

Me atthe Office In these day in age a boss is very demanding ! He will always ask an employee to do 20 jobs a the same time ! But after that an employee says to him : you should do it that  way and you will have greater results i think ! A boss will always want to do it his way ! But what do you do call a boss  that always fires employees for his decision !!!! For me that is called :  a boss firing himself  !

But how can you protect yourself from that !

A) take notes of every meeting with your advice ! ( date ,  hour and the subject )

B) Remind him after his decision that it is his decision ! ( say :  so you want me to do this like that  right ! just remember that you wanted it this way ok , after you smile !)

C) Remind him your suggestion another time ! ( Maybe it will pass better the 2 time arround ! )

 

So the lesson here is back your back ! Be sharp and aware of all his decisions !
