Employees - Your Greatest Asset or Your Biggest Nightmare?

Adapted from the FAST TRACK Personnel Management System by Howard Partridge and Bridgepoint Systems May 10, 2003


Greetings!

Managing others can be one of the most challenging
and difficult endeavors you will ever encounter
in your business. Many business owners have been
unsuccessful in their pursuits of expanding their
companies due to a lack of understanding about managing
employees.


It Doesn't Have to Be This Way!

Many of our single truck operators are on the truck
because they have to be, not because they want to
be. After an unsuccessful expansion, they give in to
the old cliché's of "you just can't find good help",
and "you can't trust anyone". This is a tragedy,
because there are companies across America that are
very successful and have many employees. It doesn't
have to be this way!

Many companies accross America have been extremely
successful in hiring and keeping the best employees. My
first employee is still with me today. I have several that
have been with me more than 10 years, and many more
that have been there for more than 5 years.
Bridgepoint, who authored most of the FAST TRACK
Personnel Management System has 190 employees!!

Manager or Leader?

Maybe you currently have employees, and you want to
find ways to better manage them. The first key to
success in being a manager is "Don't seek to be a good
manager!" Instead, be a great leader! A manager simply
keeps things in order and accounts for resources and
the organization. Leaders motivate and inspire people
to achieve a common goal.

Dwight D. Eisenhower's definition of leadership is "The
art of getting someone else to do something you want
done because he wants to do it!"

The two key points to this quote by Eisenhower are:

1. What you want- clearly defining to your staff
what it is you want and giving them the tools to do it.

2. What he wants - instilling in your staff the
vision and rewards - in other words, what's in it for
them?

If either of these two points are not addressed, then
you, your company and the employee will fall short of
the target!

Disturbing Facts

Here are some disturbing management facts:

· The average employee has no idea what is
expected of him
· The average employee is not given the tools
to do the job requested of him
· The average employee gets a formal review
only every 12-18 months, and he usually has to ask for
it
· The average employee does not have well-
defined goals
· The average employee is measured on
negative observations as opposed to positive outcomes

And we wonder why they can't seem to get it right!
Maybe, just maybe, it is not our employee's fault, but
our lack of leadership and direction?

My friend owns the local Dale Carnegie franchise and
spoke at my Round Table Event. He has a session in
which he polls attendees on what makes a great leader.
He categorizes the responses into Skill, Knowledge and
Attitude. Attitude gets 90% every time.
