Monday--and not so chirpy
Then, I started to write here about how good managers are positive. I hate positive. Have you ever heard a dopier saying than "It's all good"?
I have a doctor tell me once to stay positive--no, YOU stay positive and I hope you went to med school they day they taught my operation.
Let's see--the CareerBuilder article on positive managers--it says not to be a negative manager. I can kind of grok that.
Don't be over-controlling. Overchecking, micromanaging, creating impossible rules--don't.
Admit mistakes. I mean, don't ignore them or cover them up.
Have a single standard for all.
Don't punish the good and reward the bad. Some manager do this to make themselves feel more adequate.
Ask yourself--do you think your people look forward to coming to work?
