Advice for Executives
I have observed a lot of executives. I was a manager and a leader too. Probably, my advice could be valuable for you mainly because I didn't have everything work perfectly for me in the beginning. There were failures and disappointments in people and even in myself as a manager. But I kept being a manager and continued searching for answers in spite of my frequent willingness to lose my belief in people and to agree that all employees are bad.
I observed those who believed that people are good and I tried to understand what gave them such certainty. Now I have this certainty and I want to pass on this certainty to you.
It’s absolutely necessary to understand what makes employees good and what makes them bad. If you say to yourself: “Well, it's only his opinion!”, you're right. I do not insist that you have to agree with everything written in this book. These are definitely my own opinions and conclusions which are based on my experience of management, consulting and, most importantly, on my observation of the successes and failures of other leaders.
Right, this is just advice. But this is not advice to just act blindly on what's written here. This is to advise you read this and then to observe for yourself in order to understand if this can occur in your company, as well as in your life. And maybe you can get a couple of ideas, which will make you more successful and wealthy. There are those who have observed this advice and applied it successfully. I will be happy if I'm able to help you also.
Please be very attentive and even little bit cautious. Check out everything against your own experience and observation. But don't refuse something written here, just because it doesn't correspond to the opinions of most people or to the ideas of authorities or even to your own former ideas.
If you want to find some workable answers, read on. Thank you for being someone that is still willing to seek answers. Never stop looking and learning. The best answers exist for only those who actively seek more truth. Forward!
