Business owners seeking to develop and grow their businesses, will eventually need to become employers, and at that point they will need to understand how to effectively manage employees.

 

Despite common misconceptions, business owners do not instinctively know how to manage people, and most new to the game make many mistakes that can be avoided with a little prior knowledge.

 

This excellent article, suggests that most business owners unfortunately learn the hard way as to the best ways of managing people , and it offers five important things business owners need to know before they take on employees who they will manage.

Some sound and common sense advice here. The vast majority of new managers are thrown in at the deep end. This information is particularly relevant to 3001 - Outcome 3 and also Unit 3005.

There is a significant difference between rising through the ranks to a position of authority and starting a business where you are instantaneously thrust into a position of power by virtue of your investment.Those who have risen through the ranks with positions of increasing authority are much more likely to understand what it takes to be an effective leader.Where as founders are often so invested in their business that they are driven by the fear of failure .Instead of leading they rule.Employees are marginalized to the point  that they work in constant fear of the loss of their job.This not only inhibits the employees development ,it poisons the corporate enviorment.

How resilient are you? Being a small business owner is hard but rewarding work. With the right attitude and proper support structure, you can make a go at it. 

Lorinda Forrest's curator insight, October 24, 2013 8:36 AM

Tough times teach resiliance and sometimes asking for help enables you to see your situation more objectively.

Small business owners will always feel like they have a lot to prove as well a lot to lose. Especially, for the majority of the business owners that life has been devoted to keeping their business afloat. They have invested too much of their time money and effort into their business. According to the article it stress that a business owner MUST have resilience as a leader. They must be able to take on any obstacle that comes their way.

 

With the understanding that they still-fragile economic recovery, the difficulties small businesses face securing funding, and the importance of finding and retaining the right employees, places enormous stress on leaders today. Which is understandable however the business world does not wait on anyone? The competitors feast off of those that show weakness. By developing a true resilient mindset, small business owners can continue growing their business regardless of the obstacles around them.

 

In the article it gave a couple of tips on how to improve business owner’s resilience mindsets. It was four steps; don’t go it alone, accept people help, keep your eye on the goal, maintain a positive outlook.

 

Reach out to other trusted business owner or consultants for ideas and support. Small Business owners need to realize they are not in it alone. Once you have reached out the next step will accept the help that is being offered. It is not a sign of weakness. Business owners should keep their eye and mind on why they started this company to reinsurance themselves when time gets hard. Which can help them keep a positive outlook on any situation that comes up to sufface.  

 

With that being said I think that smaller business should engaged more into the Chapter 9 topic business to business relations. Which chapter touches on a couple key points for this particular article the fact of building and maintaining a relationship with other local businesses. On page 194 in the chapter someone suggested and I quote , " one-one-one discussions, partner advisory councils, surveys, and collaboration. the idea is to understand their issues and help partners grow."   Having an understanding that it is a competition however what a competition is if you have no one to compete with.

 

From a PR stand point I think that having that open minded mind set and such with only help you and your community thrive for better prosperity.

What is a Competent Supervisor? | ReadyToManage

What is a Competent Supervisor? | ReadyToManage | Career Coaching | Scoop.it

Today’s organizational supervisors in the third millennium face far greater challenges than any of their predecessors. Enterprises of all kinds are not only supposed to pursue higher quality, meet and exceed ever-changing customer expectations and beat ever-more agile competition, but expect this to be achieved in less time, with fewer people, using more modern technology and working within the flattest possible organizational structure. Supervisors (especially first line ones) must therefore constantly “juggle” their time and energy to simply survive (and try to remain reasonably sane in the process).

Despite these challenges, the good news is that any supervisor’s main competencies or skills clusters can be broken into five key (and relatively unchanging) activity sets. In other words, supervisors can usually cope well if they are strong or developed their skills in each of these areas.
