This is not an attempt to make up for my "dead pig" comment in yesterday's post. It is rather, a HT to Brand Autopsy for turning me on to PigWisdom, the blog efforts of Jack Hayhow.
This post, What is a Manager's Role, asks relevant questions that each of us should be required to address each quarter (I say quarterly, because that's how I often I undergo a performance review).
The post opens with:
In the Year 2000 alone, forty CEO's of the top 200 companies on the
Fortune 500 list were fired or forced to resign.
With that in mind, Hayhow asks:
Are your people more productive working for you than they would be
working for someone else? Are they growing more?
Check out the post here - and keep this in mind....self-assessment is only good if it's followed by action.
