Management books have it all wrong. They all try to tell you how to manage “people.”
It’s impossible to manage “people;” it’s only possible to manage individuals. And because individuals differ from one another, what works with one individual may not work with somebody else.
Some individuals thrive on public praise; others feel uncomfortable when singled out. Some individuals are all about the money; others thrive on challenging assignments. Some individuals need mentoring; others find advice to be grating.
The trick is to manage individuals the way that THEY want to be managed, rather than the way that YOU’d prefer to be managed.
