Ah, this is indeed fun. You become more irrational by the post.
I know of people who run massive comanies, case in hand Ambanis, that simply yell at their employees on the production line. What in the world ever made you think that the type of managment (in human resources terms) leads to a sucessful company, it is one thing, and one thing only, the idea, the marketing, and the grastoniogrphy of the product that determins sucess. Never be mistaken.
- the ravings of a man lost in his own delusions. Where has anyone made such an assumption? Every single statement you make supports the conclusion that you are a very low level employee in a large company - perhaps janitorial or building security - with delusions of someday moving up, and very frustrated by the fact that you are passed up by the incompetents who supervise you. I doubt you keep a job more than a few months at a time.
Moreover, the day that somebody who reports to me, dares to say that they have even the slighest amount of ability as I do, they can be sure that they will be struck off. May I please ask you to tell the owner of the company, which you work for what you just told me.
As it is unlikely in the extreme that there will ever be even one person reporting to you, the point is moot. I surround myself with those who are experts in their respective disciplines and learn from them daily. Many of my employees are far better qualified than I in some areas, none have the breadth of my experience, or my ability to successfully meld those talents into a cohesive team that produces superior results. One or two man develop that experience and then they will replace me, as I will move, either up or laterally, within the company. He that is irreplaceable is unpromotable, and he that is unpromotable has failed and will be replaced.The Sr. staff at my company have now read a good portion of your posts and we have decided to use some of your statements in our Management Training program as examples of poor management and effectiveness.
Quote you certainly don't exhibit the confidence one would expect from one in your rarified circles But yet... Quote None would last a day with your perspective and smug arrogance. Q. Do you make any sense A. To a donkey, yes, to a book, yes, to a working-class citizen, perhaps. To anyone above such, never.
Confidence and smug arrogance are not at all the same thing. The first is the ability to leverage a lifetime of experience, both personal and from those around you, to make sound statements and decisions. The second is the conviction, in spite of evidence to the contrary, that you are right. You certainly don't fall in the first category. And from the post just previous:
Correction then, manage people as a prime objective.
The only objective of the President/CEO/Chairman is to maximize shareholder value and return on investment throught the efficient and effective utilization of all resources, be they financial, intellectual, physical or human. Surely you
comprehend these basics of business. Unfortunately, I've no more time to toy with you - a truly joyous endeavor - as I actually have real work to do.
