David’s Laws of Management

Posted by David Chandler on December 4, 2007

1. Love your people. Listen to your employees. Give them the tools & support they need to do their jobs. Clear roadblocks. Keep hope alive. Act as though the people closest to the work are the ones with the best ideas about how to improve it. Empower them to fix what’s broken.

2. Have a plan. This is one of the greatest ways you can serve your people. If you do nothing else, when employees ask “which of your #1 priorities do you want me to work on today?” you should be able to pick one. If you can’t, what do they need you for? No problems worth solving can be solved without focus.
