Management expert William Anken III vividly compares the actions that need to be taken to solve problems to "monkeys on their backs" in his book "Don't Let the email list Monkey Ride Back: Why Leaders Have No Time and Subordinates Have Nothing to Do".
Managers are often overwhelmed by the "monkeys" that carry too many team members on their backs, and do not have time to take care of their "monkeys".
To be honest, I have not been a manager for a long time, so I am not a master of management, let alone have any superb management experience.
But for management work, I can often see some problems in many leaders, and I also use this article to talk about the wrong demonstrations and management misunderstandings of some leaders I have encountered. Maybe it will give you "monkeys" who are taking care of yourself. At the time, there are some small lessons and references.
1) rush for success
I believe that every manager has a time when they "hate iron but not steel" towards their subordinates, especially when they watch employees work but can't work, there is always the urge for managers to roll up their sleeves and do it for employees.
This approach seems to be very results-oriented, but it helps to maximize the output of the team. Although things are done with your help, the overall team's work efficiency has not improved.
In many cases, the way of growth is not the way to grow, and novice managers have to learn to adapt to the situation that things cannot progress as they want. Only focus on key issues, let the team play more, and wait for the team to complete the acceptance of the results.
There is a saying that, at any time, being a nanny is no better than being a coach.
2) Dominate everything
Many managers like to dominate everything, and they have to listen to themselves in everything. They are the heirs of "Ming Xue".
In fact, this kind of mentality can also be understood. For example, as a manager, handing over specific tasks to employees to complete means handing over familiar battlefields and stages to employees, stepping back behind the scenes, and enjoying countless applause and For the new managers of flowers, they may not be very comfortable.
Therefore, even if you are a leader, you will never let go of the details.
In fact, this is a typical wrong direction. The real leader does not care about how many great achievements he has, but can help others grow and gain a sense of accomplishment.
