Five Key Characteristics of Management
- Good communication
- Goal setting
- Public Recognition
The first four are really fundamentals of any good management system. They can be described in different ways but when you get down to the base of it, it is all the same.
When good communication, goal setting, accountability and trust are developed in a company, and then you add public recognition [which basically allows employees to see that what they are doing is working and they are being recognized for their work] it is incredibly powerful. If you take out one of these five pieces it radically impedes a company from thriving and slows down the system.
Public recognition almost acts as a catalyst. However, if you try and implement public recognition and you don’t have one of the first four in place it has the potential to not work or it will backfire on you. When you don’t have clear communication, clear goals, accountability and trust; when you start telling an employee they are doing a great job it sounds very hallow and empty. For employees, it may feel like you are giving them empty encouragement. Remember, happy employees make for a more successful small business!
If you want to grow your business and make it bigger, better and faster you need to use the five characteristics of management.
