Last December I posted about Michael Kroth, Ph.D. and Patricia Boverie, Ph.D. and their Ideas for Leading with Passion.
Now here's an interview with Kroth. I love what he has to say on management and meaning.
Kroth: Good leaders are really meaning makers. Their job is to find out what is meaningful to each person on their team and then try to match the work to that meaning. Of course, you also need to hire people who will find some aspect of real estate sales meaningful.
RMO: How do you know what's meaningful to an individual?
Kroth: First, just ask them. Make it part of each person's annual business planning or performance review. Ask them what part of the plan or the job is most meaningful to them. Often managers assume that's what's meaningful to them is meaningful to others...
Just ask them? Revolutionary!
