Example text

That person may not know. And it doesn’t matter. All you care about is that the person has a strong need. The rest is predictable. So, you don’t have to understand anything about the people who work for you or those you work with other than that they need something. If you can provide it, you’re in business. You’re a ‘‘motivator’’ of people. We can deduce motives from the way people behave. Motives cannot be observed directly. Thus, we might observe someone attending night classes and infer a motive to achieve.

Say, ‘‘This is important to my people. ’’ It’s unlikely you’ll get everything you want. But it’s very likely you’ll get some of what you want. Remember, you have to prove yourself to your people. They want a champion. A warrior. Someone who’s willing to battle the bureaucracy. We admire people who have the courage of their convictions. Try to fight the battles you can win. Back off if it’s not worth the fight. But now’s the time to push back. Your new manager wants to please you as much as you want to please her.

Phrases such as ‘‘That’s management confidential,’’ or ‘‘You don’t have a need to know,’’ or ‘‘If I wanted to let you know, I would have told you’’ get bad reactions. Employees will think, ‘‘My manager doesn’t care about me. ’’ 6. Name-Calling. Confronting employees by saying ‘‘You are careless’’ or ‘‘You’re getting lazy’’ can produce defensive responses such as, ‘‘Who do you think you are to judge me? ’’ 7. Patronizing. Compliments can be taken the wrong way. A lot of it has to do with the employee’s experience with past managers.
