People who feel good About themselves produce good results
Think about yourself. When do you work best? Is it when you feel good about yourself? Or when you don't? helping people feel good about themselves is a key to productivity. Yes. However. remember productivity is more than just the quantity of work done. It is also the quality.
Look at this. Do you see how many customers that restaurant has? Without giving people a quality product and the service they want you won't stay in business for long. It's easy to miss the obvious. The best way to achieve these successful results is with people! It's the people in the best restaurants that are creating their success.
...Goals make clear what is most important to focus on. Praisings build confidence that helps you succeed. and Re-Directs address mistakes. And all three of these help people feel better about themselves and produce good results.
Focus is saying no to 1,000 good ideas.
Every time I read a management or self-help book, I find myself saying, “That’s fine, but that wasn’t really the hard thing about the situation.” The hard thing isn’t setting a big, hairy, audacious goal. The hard thing is laying people off when you miss the big goal. The hard thing isn’t hiring great people. The hard thing is when those “great people” develop a sense of entitlement and start demanding unreasonable things. The hard thing isn’t setting up an organizational chart. The hard thing is getting people to communicate within the organization that you just designed. The hard thing isn’t dreaming big. The hard thing is waking up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat when the dream turns into a nightmare.
The last 10% is 90% of the work.
