Lacks Support. Bullying.
Cons: belittling management
A management team who wants to respond to every bad thing that ever happens with another policy or unbending process written in stone need to lighten up. You can’t have an agile, creative, innovative, effective workplace that responds to today’s business needs and climate realities if every attempt to get work done is stifled or significantly delayed by people enforcing extremely conservative policies and complex processes that may be even prohibit the very actions they are presumably established to guide. The business does not exist to enforce its policies and processes. The policies and processes exist to help the business accomplish its objectives, and when they impede that progress, they need to be called out and changed by those empowered to do so.
It’s sad to see those who prefer to pound square pegs into round holes in the name of efficiency instead of allowing assets to be used where they will be most productive. Efficiency over productivity almost never produces either and never compensates for the loss of passion & forward momentum that happens when people are forced into situations for which they are not well suited. Instead, the peg either shatters from the effort or is pounded into something it was never meant to be in the first place. Much better to let good people do what they do well because then they will do more then they are ever asked to do. that takes vision and leadership and a willingness to go against the conventional management wisdom of our day. that doesn’t happen too often.
That seems like common sense to me, but as I’ve heard others say, “If common – more... sense was common, more people would have it.”
