In his book “First, Break All The Rules”, Marcus Buckingham explains how the best managers select employees for talent rather than for skills or experience and how they lead, develop and motivate people. So the great managers are those who do things differently. I enjoy the book and subscribe to its contents. I believe in breaking or not following the rules, except for rules that are related to legal, moral, religious and safety issues.
Adopt this – says the wise owl
I believe in breaking (or not following) the rules when the need to change is compelling. Managers who just adopt the status quo are not change leaders. Except for rules that are related to legal, moral, religious and safety issues – all other rules can be broken.
Discard this: –
In our rapidly changing and globalising world, one that is driven by near-instantaneous communications over the internet, playing the game to win means that rules made in earlier times must be examined and replaced, broken and not followed.
As an Entrepreneur, a leader and a manager – know where you are.
