INTRODUCTION SUMMARY .......
Words of Wisdom for the Work Place and Life in General
This book is dedicated to my love Debbie
I''ve always wanted to put my thoughts on paper. This book will give you helpful hints to Improve Communications and Enhance Productivity. I also put together all the Words of Wisdom dealing with the Work Force and Life in General.
I look back over the years and the events that molded me into a person and manager I became. I am very proud of the twenty-nine years in management. I did accomplish a lot in developing people, creating new ideas, raising the bar, and most important surviving it all.
Throughout the years I played a part in building five Distribution Centers, retrofitting systems, creating automation designs, and developing managers.
I don''t pretend to know everything, but I think I''ve seen almost everything. I''ve learned each year better ways of being more productive. I do know making things simple and through people is the only way. The best managers are ones who can communicate with people with respect. If you can''t gain respect you''ll have a rough time getting the results necessary to survive in this competitive world.
I''ve had some great managers, coaches, and teachers throughout my career. I''ve also had some managers who were out of touch and unprofessional, and who micro managed.
I have increased my knowledge a little from each in developing my own personal style and skills to have a successful career.
The biggest opportunity for the new generation managers is learning the basic skills. The new managers must be able to Plan, Organize, and Execute. The new manager must be able to communicate and set an example as a leader. They both are important because without them you likely will not be successful.
I have put together years of Wisdom. There are many ways to express your thoughts. I want to share mine through this this book Words of Wisdom for the Work Place and Life in General. I put together material that I gained through Experience, Teamwork and Listening to People.
I want you to sit back and relax ......
I hope this book will help with your approach in working with people and toward life in general.
