Making Changes For The Better
Dear Management Doctor:
I recently came across your website regarding wise management tips. I have been in both the private and public sectors for over ten years in two different states (California and Texas), and have a tiny bit of international experience (India). I feel like human management issues are the same no matter where one goes. For the longest time I've contemplated getting involved with management opportunities or at least trying to work towards a more healthier and engaging work environment wherever I've been. This has led me to developing new leadership styles, especially with the changing face of the workforce that is often paired up with dated and/or unhealthy leadership styles. I think the Zucker Group's efforts are in line with those of my beliefs. So, I am curious to know what the Zucker team would recommend for me in terms of making some change for the better and if there are any opportunities to work with you folks to explore these avenues further. I would be happy to forward my resume upon a response from your office.
At the end of the day, I'd like to go home feeling like I've contributed to making one's work environment all the more healthier, enjoyable and, in turn, productive.
Needing A Change.
First of all, let me congratulate you on developing new leadership styles. Your last sentence says it all - "At the end of the day, I'd like to go home feeling like I've contributed to making one's work environment all the more healthier, enjoyable and, in turn, productive." Managers should be providing that feeling for all their employees. As I travel the country, I see too many employees and managers who don't feel that way. My advice is always the same, if you can't manage to find this where you work, go do something else. Life is too short to live that way. Fortunately, we are in an age where there are many job opportunities, including changing careers.
We are currently not hiring, but always like to have resumes of good people in our files. I would be happy to receive yours. Additionally, many of our clients are looking for good people and I am at times in a position to pass along resumes.
