How to exceed expectations in your first managerial role | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

After years of hard work, you’ve landed your first position as a manager. It’s now time to prove yourself in your new role, but that may be a challenging task if you haven’t been trained to manage.

If you’re feeling unprepared for your new duties, you’re not alone.

Here's a Thought: Trust Your Employees and Throw Away the Clock

Here's a Thought: Trust Your Employees and Throw Away the Clock | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

One of the icons of the Industrial Age is the time clock (aka punch clock – maybe because you’re very tempted to punch it).


In an industrial age business, the human resources are plugged into jobs that are in most cases boring, anti-creative, non-stimulating. To keep people at such drudgery, two tools are employed: hourly wages and the time clock.


The hourly wage incentivises one thing and one thing only: putting in the required number of hours of “doing the work.” The time clock is the enforcement mechanism necessary to accomplish that goal.

3 Easy Ways to Improve Your Efficiency

3 Easy Ways to Improve Your Efficiency | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

When it comes to many of the people who we think are hardworking, we're really just misinformed. For instance, it is a common thought that people who work late are hardworking. Why? Because the assumption is that they have so much work to do that they must burn the midnight oil to get it done. Another example is when we see people who always seem like they are busy all the time. Again, they have taken on so much work that they must work all the time.

In truth, most of these "hard workers" are just inefficient. Look closely and you'll see they use these methods to produce the same results as everybody else. And while it can be argued that these people are disciplined because of their work ethic, more of a focus should be put on productivity. And to produce more results, you don't have to work longer, just smarter.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Most people who we think are working hard are mismanaging their time.
