What Do You Want From Them

It was my first week on the job as a new manager. My management training program had lasted three months. During that time, I learned how to be a decent grill operator and was proud of my progress. When I took over my own store at the age of 23 (the youngest person in my unit), I wanted to show the more experienced workers that I knew my stuff. We didnt have assistant managers or shift supervisors and I was responsible for everything and everyone. It was great; I felt really important.

I paid for operating supplies out-of-pocket, so that I would meet a certain performance goal. A division manager I knew once bought a $300 waffle to inflate the monthly combined net revenue of his stores (and so that he would receive his monthly bonus which, apparently, was more than $300).

A Health and Fitness Exercise Program to Reduce Work Stress

What Do You Want From Them

In early times when Neanderthals lived in the wild, as some do in the office today, everybody had a health and fitness exercise program. Its called hunting. Nobody needed any motivation to participate in the course because if they didnt do it, then theyll go on a lose weight fast diet from which theyll never recover. Nobody had a problem with work stress then, because all the stress they received was due to surviving each day. Times havent changed much.

Hospitality Management

I mentioned before how incompetent I felt when a kitchen employee cut his finger with a knife and I did not have a first-aid kit at hand. Oh, and how disappointed I was when the health inspector counted off a point because our outside dumpster was rusty. Managing a restaurant/bar/bowling alley/resort/. is far from easy.

Leadership Is Overrated

What Do You Want From Them

Its funny, leadership ( whatever that is ) might not be so important after all. As managers, we shouldnt care if employees followed us. Right? Its our job to set people and projects up for success and to operate according to our company's culture. The company, in turn, should serve the customer. There are people in any organization who have the ability to naturally influence crowds.

How Do You Draw The Line?

What Do You Want From Them

This morning I talked to my neighbor about 11-year-old (!) Birke Baehr's presentation  What's wrong with our food system  (view on Ted.com ). Long story short, my neighbor mentioned that even if I had an organic farm, soil and rainwater would still pollute my crops. Then she pointed out that planet earth won't be around forever, regardless of humans populating/polluting it or not. That got me thinking, how or where should/do we draw lines? Do some people exaggerate being green ?

A few years ago, my brother came to Charlotte (all the way from Germany) and visited the short-order restaurant I was managing. He thought it would be particularly funny to drop a fork on the floor and see who picked it up. The second shift waitress in that section never did.

Inspire The World ??? A Recipe

What Do You Want From Them

I mentioned in an earlier post that I am not great at inspiring others. So I did some research (they say leadership can be learned) and came up with the following recipe - just in time for the holiday season: Making inspiration is actually quite simple, at least on paper. Youll need Conscientiousness, Why, Belief in Change, and Authenticity. Quick example: Apple inspires customers to buy their products.

Competitive Advantage: Employees Who Know They Can Make A Difference

Step 5 of my inspiration recipe called for "Make others believe that they can make a difference.. Thats an ingredient you cant buy at Wal-Mart. Let me approach this from a personal experience : A few years ago, my husband was diagnosed with adult ADHD. ADHD is linked to low levels of the neurotransmitters Dopamine and Norepinephrine. This results in, for example, inattention, distractibility, difficulties with planning and sequencing.

I mentioned before that as a kid, I tried to make other kids eat worms. I told them that if they didn't, they would not belong to my cool group. We played around with a worm for a while and I was totally grossed out just by looking at it. "Its Its not even that big of a deal to eat this worm. I think one kid actually considered putting it in his mouth, but then decided against it. A girl spoke up and said, "I want to see you eat it.

Shrinking My Companions

What Do You Want From Them

"The love of money is the root of all evil, said Paul in a letter to Timothy. Many people love business and many business people love money (though not necessarily in the biblical sense). Business is about money and gain. If you went into business for any other reason than making money, then you might want to do a quick reality check. Would you trade your cow for a couple of hens eggs? No, because you want to trade your cow up. As managers, we strive to provide added value as a unit.

Managing Remotely

What Do You Want From Them

Do you think it is difficult to work remotely? What I mean is 'telecommuting', where you sit at a desk many miles away from your colleagues. Does one have to have a different work style to manage resources remotely? In my opinion, within reason, there is no real difference. Why do I say that? Let's take a typical project (if there is such a thing) as an example. The project starts with a kick-off meeting on site, in a meeting room or wherever the project office may be operating from.

Being An Authentic Manager

I sometimes struggle with being authentic. Growing up, I was taught what to consider appropriate and what not.

My home was not spotless; the dog had played with. plastic bottles that were lying on the floor, the dishes were not done.

A crisis exposes character or the lack of it. Our reaction is important. Our recent history requires a response; a correction; a change in the status quo. If we are thinking more-of-the-same or merely upping our game then we are destined to fail again. On the other hand if we are looking to change our games or approach, then we have a way forward.

Thanks for your contributions in 2010!
