5 Common Myths and Truths of Management

I am always amazed that even in 2014, there are some people who still manage people like in the past. The following are the Top 5 Most Common Myths and Truths of People Management:

Myth 1: You need money to motivate people
Truth: Accomplishment itself is a bigger motivator, and if you use money alone, you’ll get greedy people! Look at those people cheat at mega banks and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Myth 2: You must push people to achieve Your Company's Goals 
Truth: People are pushed by their own commitment than your goals. If their commitment is aligned with your goals, your goal setting will work. Otherwise, it will simply not work.

Myth 3: People need to be managed and controlled 
Truth: You only can manage space, time and resources. You don’t manage people, you lead people.

Myth 4: Increasing sales and profits are clear goals that everyone can relate to
Truth: People relate more to something bigger that matters and make a difference, like being able to contribute and make history.

Myth 5: Happiness is not a workplace goal or issue
Truth: If people are not happy at work, why would they want to work hard? Happiness is not everything, it is the only thing.
