Conor Kenny urges you to avoid management by slogan
It's Not That Simple Stupid!
When storms hit the high seas, people perish. Sometimes they perish at the hands of pirates. Sometimes by managers who manage by slogan.
As the world economy slowly tries to get back on its feet, like an outflowing tide, we can't help but see what damage the storm left below the surface. That damage is often not repairable.
When people are under pressure they can reveal the truth behind the superficial charm. That's easy in a boom, not so easy in a collapse. Thing is, masks that slipped are not easily forgotten.
Peter Drucker, in The Age of Discontinuity said
"Management is simple but not easy. The simple part is knowing what to do. The part that is not easy is getting others to do it"
