Am I Being Too Aggressive?!
As some of you girls may know I'm finishing up my last semester. One of my teachers requires that we meet virtually and have a discussion in a chat room. It counts as a homework credit so you have to do it if you want to receive all of your points. This is was the question:
Class, based on what we know from the Griffin text, is everyone considered a manager?
We have to respond to our fellow class mates and this is the person that I responded to:
A manager should organize their week. He or she has to make sure the company has the resources to do the job. Look at the finances to ensure the company is in the black. The need to met with the supervisors incase they need direction with the employees and check on sale to find improvements. Managers do not need to delegate but over see every employee. Let themselves be known and involved.
I have stepped in to mange for a company with 10 times the employees and I don't let them do my job. You have to delegate some work, however one does not need to look over shoulders either. If I was a lazy manager, then there was no point of me doing that job. You have to show others that you can work and you are there to help them. My point is I have seen where managers delegate their responsibility to get out of work. You need to be a team.
I absolutely agree with you about a manager and his employees working cohesively in order to be a team. My contention was with this statement, "managers do not need to delegate but over see every employee", I would rather delegate tasks to my employees in order to be more hands on manager.
I don't understand why people get there d*mn panties in a bunch if someone doesn't agree with them... he complained that I was too aggressive. Am I being too aggressive? FI doesn't think so, I thought I'd ask you ladies
