STRICT MANAGEMENT: TAKE INSIDE ACCORDING TO INDICATIONS
They exist! All about productive and interesting meetings
Inga Orlova, expert practitioner in the development and implementation of service standards, training and staff development
In Russia, hard management is one of the most popular management styles. Managers use it spontaneously, so in MBS classes they teach how to use it consciously and discuss contraindications, explain in which situations it is strictly forbidden.
Hard management is like an antibiotic: it is a strong and effective tool, but only if used as intended.
If you apply it to the place and not to the place, severe consequences are inevitable.
More instructions, regulations, and control points. This management style differs from the usual more rigid feed:
If the employee does not want to perform the task, the Manager quickly and accurately informs them of the importance of the assigned task
The boss sets transparent tasks and provides everything necessary for effective work
The Manager competently puts himself in the team. This is especially important if the company is used to a rigid management style, where any manifestation of humanity is perceived as a weakness
Strict management allows you to quickly respond to a problem and return subordinates to the working channel. You should use it in the following situations:
When employees are demotivated, they sit on their necks. They don’t take the initiative or take responsibility
Crisis. At such times, there is no time to ask for opinions and discuss, the bosses need to make unpopular decisions
Employees do not cope with the tasks set. In 80 % of cases, the Manager is to blame for this: he set unrealistic deadlines, did not indicate the desired result
Do not apply strict management in a creative creative team. Your employees need to be proactive, and this management style will kill all enthusiasm.
Strict management requires constant monitoring.
If the Manager uses it continuously, it will burn out very quickly. You should use this management style in 10 % of working hours and only in the situations described above.
NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH TYRANNY!
Not to be confused with tyranny!
Many managers believe that they are proficient in the tools of hard management. But in most cases, their actions have nothing to do with management.
You are the boss-a tyrant if:
You raise your voice when talking to your subordinates
Don’t praise the team. Basically
Go to the person, in particularly serious cases, use obscene language
Employees “run”: they leave and move to other companies
Each of these points has its own serious consequences. For example, the lack of praise will result in a complete lack of initiative — and why do something if the management is always dissatisfied with everything?
If you want to change the world, start with yourself. Studying hard management will allow you to look at yourself from the outside and change your opinion about many business processes. We wish everyone to learn how to effectively criticize, praise and not overdo it!
