Make work fun
A simple principle for good management
Make work fun. It really is that simple. Don’t make it more complicated.
I know, it is more complicated, but let’s try to simplify good management down to one guiding principle.
Your job as a manager is to ensure that your employees are working effectively to meet the department’s and the company’s objectives. It requires that individual objectives be in line with the objectives of the business.
Having fun is one objective that we can all agree on. Especially if we accept that making money is fun! For both the employee and the business.
Don't make it more complicated. Take a look at what you have to change or fix, so that work is more fun. Provide leadership, remove obstacles, give recognition. Everything else will take care of itself. They will get the job done and meet their objectives. And you will meet yours.
All the while, everybody is having fun. See, it really is that simple.
Be better. Do better.
Your Uncle Ralph, Del Chatterson
