I saw this quote the other day, and it got me thinking…
“So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.” Peter Drucker
Think of the people who manage you. What do they do, or insist that you do that gets in the way of you getting your job done?
Now put yourself in the shoes of someone you manage. What do you do that gets in their way?
Now consider as well what systems or processes are in place that stop people working effectively?
Process improvement is often such an easy win, and it is a great way to engage your team in how to make things work better.
Doing process improvement work with your team will also surface the things you can stop, start or continue to do that will help them be more productive and efficient.
Pick a process, and work with your colleagues to figure out how to make it better.
Then… commit to doing what’s needed, and do it 🙂
My best wishes, Paul
