Blenders, chatterboxes and chaos - about the “true heroes of professional life”
Employee! Hand on heart: The life as a leader could be so beautiful, if only the subordinates with their quirks, quirks and nerves would not be. Would you agree with that? Then you should quickly rethink.
Denn diese Sichtweise ist völlig verkehrt. Das Gegenteil ist richtig. Behauptet jedenfalls der Psychologe und Führungskräftetrainer Wolfgang Pauls in seinem – ich sag es jetzt schon mal, damit hier kein falscher Zungenschlag reinkommt -heiter-satirischen Buch. Motto: Humor ist Trumpf!
Satirischer Blick auf supposedly problematic employees
The problem, says Pauls, is not with the employees, but with the superior. Here it simply hapert at the right attitude. Their view of things, pardon, people, is in need of correction. Because those employees, who you as a manager at the moment may still feel as the greatest burden and trouble-stricken, are really a great enrichment for you Team and you should be grateful to them for this, as well as expressing their appreciation and recognition.
In his book, Pauls characterizes the different “top performers” in our companies - in addition to the ones mentioned above, these are the lazy, the chaot, who wants to get on the lap, the lonely, the grumbler, the last minute man and the Perfectionist - and gives specific tips on how, as a supervisor, you should lead these people to your own and to the benefit of the entire team and company. And in a subtly humorous, of course, totally untrammeled way.
Don't let your employees take your nerves off your feet. Take it with humor. The wonderful and cheerful satirical book "Our dearest employees" by Wolfgang Pauls helps. Also suitable as a gift for long-suffering managers.
