If you’ve been hired to supervise or manage a team and find yourself unequal to the task, quickly find another job before you wreck the unit you were hired to supervise. Remember – having done well at interview is a far cry from succeeding on the job.
- imagine yourself a leader;
- if you have been elected to represent a constituency;
- if you have been elected to serve as a governmental executive;
- if you have been hired to supervise the work of others –
You had better quickly develop the ability to apprehend truth, and had better quickly develop a tolerance for it, if you hope to meaningfully succeed and accomplish lasting value.
If somebody tells you the truth, what’s happening is they’re risking the effort of bothering to communicate with a class of person not usually thought capable of apprehending, making, or communicating sense on the reckoned possibility that you are not an animal known for its tendency to cover itself with filth and feed upon garbage.
Mathew 7:6 Do not give that which is holy to the dogs, nor throw your pearls before the pigs, that they should not trample them with their feet, and turning they charge you.
If you’ve been hired to supervise the work of others, supervise their work. If your managerial skills extend only so far as making those you were hired to supervise feel “managed,” aspire to and work for something better. You have a moral obligation to try.
