Daniel Watson's curator insight, October 23, 2013 7:52 PM

 

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.

Greg Lustig's curator insight, October 24, 2013 10:04 AM

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.

Helen M. Tucker's curator insight, October 24, 2013 12:22 PM

How well do you manage your staff?  Food for thought
