Be a doer not an expert

Everyone can’t be an expert and one doesn’t essentially need to be an expert to achieve success. In fact, there is no dearth of experts.

One just needs to put in hard work to bring a positive change.

Be open

No matter how important a position one holds, one must always be open to open to new suggestions. The best form of advice may come from the person working at the lowest stratum of a company.

Always acknowledge

Money is an incentive, no doubt but the biggest form of reward for any worker happens to be acknowledgement. Timely appreciation can go a long way in inspiring someone to do better than the best.

Be a good man manager

One must possess the tact to choose the right people for the right project. Someone who fails miserably at understanding a computer programme may show amazing skills at resolving a complicated puzzle of accounting.

A good man manager knows who is good at what.

Trust your team

One must always place one’s faith in the team one heads. The policy of standing by the people and trusting their ideas is an infallible management funda.

No risk, no gain

A good manager is the person who is not scared of taking risks. Any business necessarily entails taking risks. And one who is brave enough to take a chance always succeeds in the ultimate round.

Believe in practice, not theory

One should not get too bogged down by technicalities of management theories. The best management lesson can be learnt through trial and error. Books can provide a guideline only, they can never be the doer’s functional steps.

Have common sense

In times of crisis, one must fall back on one’s common sense. Relate a business problem to a personal one and ask yourself how you would have solved it in your personal capacity. Use your common sense and a solution is sure to follow.

  • If you do not milk the cow fully, it falls sick.
  • Wagon is the bread-earning horse of any transport. Load it adequately. Make it run and don’t stable it
  • My mother always told me not to handle a buffalo by its tail, but always catch it by its horns. And I have used that lesson in everything
