Ten more management styles:
1) MANAGING BY SMILING AND WEARING NICE SUITS
If you drink beer with them, lunch with them, smile to them and also wear nice suits, nothing can stop your career anymore.
2) MANAGING BY STUDYING
Despite their continual attendances of all kind of studies and congresses, the longer they learn, the further they get from the practice.
3) MANAGING BY CREATING VAGUE OVERHEAD SHEETS
Do you know them? Those sheets with some big arrows, boxes or circles?
These sheets provide the ultimate proof of their overall brilliance.
4) MANAGING BY OPEN DOOR AND EMPTY ROOM
This is a major improvement of the older ‘OPEN DOOR’ management style. Now you can really walk in and out anytime you want. Nobody ever knows where these managers are.
5) MANAGING BY SPEAKING WITH OTHER MANAGERS
This kind of managing is very popular. It will give them within a few hours the same information as an employee can tell them in 15 minutes.
6) MANAGING BY HAVING A NON SUPPORTING INFRASTRUCTURE
In an organization with a hopeless infrastructure, managers are really necessary. These managers will naturally prevent the organization from having a better infrastructure.
7) MANAGING BY USING BUZZ WORDS
These managers like to bluff your head off with hip, nearly undefined, terms.
8) MANAGING BY REORGANIZATION
If they think there is nothing more to organize, they reorganize.
9) MANAGING BY BELIEVING
These managers must be spiritually educated, because they have no clues at all.
10) MANAGING BY FORGETTING PROMISES
If you remind them to one of their promises, the priority of that promise is too low to remember.
