Managing and leading people, as it were, involves a lot of interacting. Dealing with emotions and logic. Dealing with people from various backgrounds and cultures. Managers and leaders need to think and act dispassionately, and distance themselves from prejudices and conceptions.
There are many occasions where both the subordinate and the manager/leader share intentions to work hard and produce results, but due to lack or poor communication, the relationship may fall through. All this is same as dealing with people outside of office.
We would love to hear your take on the style of managers you have worked under, and if you are a manager, what is your style of working and dealing with people and challenges. Please share your experiences below.
