Finding ways to inspire confidence
March 17, 2014 The NonProfit Times
- Managers are important to the extent they help other people to be important.
- An organization is an interacting network, not a vertical hierarchy. Effective managers work throughout; they do not sit on top.
- Out of this network emerge strategies as engaged people solve little problems that can grow into big strategies. Implementation, so-called, also feeds formulation.
- To manage is to help bring out the positive energy that exists naturally within people. Managing thus means engaging, based on judgment, rooted in context.
- Leadership here is a sacred trust earned from the respect of others.
