Peter Drucker – “So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.”
I’ve posted on meetings being a waste of time and management ego’s. Great managers lead and let the employees work and succeed. Mostly, the best managers help their employees grow and advance in their careers. I know I’ve had both types. When I was a manager, I did everything I could to those working for me the opportunity to show what they can do and help them when they fell down.
Unfortunately, most can’t seem to get out of their own way and realize that the best managers surround themselves with a good team and give them the power to do their jobs to the best of their ability.
