I prefer result vs better money reward and vcation to be more productive. These two tools are very simple and scope for much manipulation.

I guess it would be so very hectic for someone to manage another individual. Some managers try to manage the other team members and get into conflict. I think projects should be managed not people. Because people have emotions.

@SP, I think that ideally the mob of a manger is to help employees be more productive. These tools could be used in ways that are negative, but used appropriately, then can help the manager understand how long things take, what elements of the job are unreasonably long, etc. More than a "Big Brother" item, i would hope they would help a manager be informed and reasonable.

SP, emotions are required in motivating others. If there is n o emotions, all peoples may work like machines; but somewhere some links may get missed and end up in a mess.

Jacob,

Have to agree wholeheartedly.

There are serious limits about how much can be done by Most Humans if you don't consider the emotions involved there.

I also think it would be beyond dumb to not involve the Creative Input of Folks who have been doing something for Years and Years together in the whole process.

Thanks Ashish. Emotions are natural and those who turned against it are heartless peoples.

With respect to your statement-

Emotions are natural and those who turned against it are heartless peoples.

 

Have to agree wholeheartedly.

But then Business is Cold-BloodedLogic & Numbers above everything else.


As long as the Company Execs see The most Profit(even if its in the short-term) they will stick to it come what may.

Ashish, 

I have no clue what emotions are you talking about, but many times you want to just kill them because they cause you pain and block your ability to function. In this case, I vote for killing them, because it's you, or them. Not necessarily you become heartless, but you start wearing an armour to avoid wounds. :D

This is the Biggest Strength and Weakness of Business today.

Why is a weakness?

Because what happens when things don't go quite according to plan?

They tend to simply cut costs by Firing employees or by cutting capital Expenditure at the most critical times(in Recessions).

Why can't they explain the situation clearly to employees and cut salaries partially instead?

Asish, would you think employees will agree for a salary cut; brain drain will the only after math. When outside Job market is good obliviously they will try for a change.

That's where Team-Spirit and Fostering the Right Employee Culture comes into play.

After a particular point in Time,Employees don't really change jobs just for 15%-30% more ;its more about how you are treated at your Company and whether or not you feel Respected and Appreciated there.

I hope you appreciate what I am saying here.

That's the smart and sustainable way to Work.

Think about it;if you work for One company for that long;its so much easier for the company to be flexible to your needs[Whatever be the change in Circumstances in your life at that point of time].

In contrast if you are one of those Flippers who constantly change Jobs its just not possible for anyone in your Company to place their trust in You when it comes to Handing you new Responsibilities.

Smart,Smart Thinking!

Asish, basically am satisfied and comfortable with my assignments, working culture and perks. So still time I never had a though about changing the employer. But many time my peers told me that am not ambitious, that's why I am still with the same employer.

Given how rapidly Economic Cycles are changing Nowadays it makes no sense to move for just 10-15% Increments and re-exposing yourself to tremendous career uncertainty.

After all,if the Economic Cycle dips suddenly its usually the New Guys who get booted out first.

Its no longer just a question of Grabbing the Economic Oppurtunity but also maintaining Stability and the Status-Quo.

When there is so much Flux/Change happening around you;most Established Companies prefer a Degree of Stability.

That comes from sticking with the Status-Quo.

Asish, when others are fearful, there may be some reasons behind that. So taking high risk at that situation can lead to total loss.teh best way is explore the opportunities in all sense with mild to moderate risk.

This approach works well usually but you need to have redundancies in place.

What happens if someone from your limited pool of Professionals falls sick?

Or decides to leave your company because they don't feel like it?

This is where it makes sense to train some more of your Employees to take on atleast part of the Key Responsibilities here ,especially if you incentivize them adequately enough.

Why not Hire more folks(even if they are on a part-time basis) to share some of the Work-Load?

Its most unfortunate that most people in Senior Management(across most Fortune 500 Firms) don't think this way.

Employees are clearly Expendable assets currently.

That's what happens in a world of Artificially Suppressed Interest Rates!
