A comment made by an individual last week that really impressed me. It spoke of the “potential for chaos” in the outcome of outsourcing. Wow! I’ve never seen that in my work, even though I’ve seen it in person at my previous J.O.B. It made me think about what could have caused the chaos. In the same way, I was watching television with my son the other day, and I noticed that his most-loved show featured the prize of a lifetime known as “Chaos Emeralds.” I discovered that when these emeralds became taken over by someone who was a fan of chaos: hatred and fear, They were transformed into negative traits. If the people who held them were a believer in friendship and growth, They adopted positive characteristics. What a fascinating idea to go back to our children’s childhoods and evaluate our own. Here’s my opinion on what is effective and what doesn’t work when you assign or recruit an essential team member.
We start out naturally nice
When we were children, we began to play well with our friends, but eventually, social norms and peers flooded into our worlds, and we began our process of assimilation. The ones who assimilated through the power and charisma of leaders. If you are a leader who has a desire to improve and improve, you need to focus on more than the things that can get you to your destination. The person you are looking for is equally crucial. If you are looking to prevent the loss of employees, you must consider not just what they might accomplish for you, but also in the event that they can do the things you mentioned, then how do you support them to grow within your company before you hire them.
“Greed Is Good” or is it?
Gordon Gecko made that phrase popular, and look at the places it’s bringing its followers out of prison, fleeing from the country, or crashing on the beach. Karma is an extremely immutable law. It could take some time to find you when you violate it. Offshoring is a great illustration of this. Recently, I faced problems with customer service with my phones. This company relies on offshore customer service. I generally don’t mind. However, I was scolded by one of the staff who didn’t get my issue. My distrust is rooted in the business, not the person who runs it. So, is his modest savings in hours worth the cost? It’s possible, but we’re thinking of moving all our services right now.
Let’s Attract Failure We:
My boss was an excellent example of delegation failure. She was a fan of chaos. Anything less than that was unacceptable to her. She assigned vague tasks and claimed to give individuals ownership and then reprimanded or fired anyone who demanded clarification. She preferred to rule and not control. If you’re approaching individuals you’re adding on your team in a chaotic location, “I desperately need help,” or you are looking for immediate results, without guidance and instruction, you’re attracting failure. If you’re not able to lead, do not. People who are new – regardless of their experience level – require direction and permission to make mistakes at first.
Don’t be rushed – It’ll Be All Right.
If there’s one thing I can recommend to you, it’s this one. My team is constantly growing. There are times that a new member isn’t performing something correctly. If that happens, I take a moment to consider, “What process did I forget to train?” If the process isn’t something I have recorded for the future, I address the issue immediately. If it’s a person-related issue, I hold an emergency meeting to ensure we’re all on the same page regarding that job. Different levels of professionals have different expectations regarding training. One thing they all share is the aim you set for yourself. If you aren’t clear and dedicate time to exercise and cross-training, you’ll be overwhelmed. You must plan to get rid of yourself from the chaos. (Try to avoid the gemstones!)
