An Opportunity to Grow

If you are the boss, remember that business is about people. People make the stuff other people buy and use.

The ancient Eastern philosophy teaches us, “When the student is
ready, something will happen to embarrass him,” or words to that
effect. If we are never challenged in our lives, we won’t grow very
much. Maybe that’s not important to you, but you might never have
been an idiot. It’s the seminal lesson. Making peace with your inner
idiot is the first step on a long road to recovery, bringing you personal
peace and a peaceful coexistence with other idiots.

Look at your Idiot Boss through new eyes. He wants to be important.
In many respects, he’s already more important than you want
him to be. Work smart. Don’t wait for your I-Boss to conjure up
some ridiculous scheme to keep him, and you, busy. Examine your
departmental and organizational objectives and suggest plans that will
make them so. When your I-Boss takes credit, let it go. Plan your
work and work your plan. Be ready for opportunities when they come.
I’m not suggesting that you sit and ponder the origins of your
I-Boss’s thinking and behavior. Accept he has a history just like you
and is a product of some combination of nature and nurture, just like
you. Working for this person might be an opportunity for you to grow
and develop into a Good Boss when your turn comes.

If you are the boss, remember that business is about people. People
make the stuff other people buy and use. People provide services other
people need and pay for. Good Bosses never forget that. Nobody starts
life more important than anyone else. I believe that no soul is more
precious to the One who created it than any other at any time. Everybody
has a situation suitable to their unique talents and abilities. Find
yours. Find the optimal opportunity for your team members to be
actualized. There is no more effective way to pump up the bottom
line.
