Food for thought

”Be careful not to promote someone beyond their last level of obedience, do so and you might have a case rebellion on your hands”.

I tweeted this yesterday and thought I should share it on my blog today and explain it a bit more. This is particularly useful for those who are organisational and team leaders.  The ‘level’ referred to here is not just one act, it is a position where one acts from.

It is important as leaders to be sensitive to the different levels at which those we lead are at. One of the priorities for ‘promotion’ should be the ability of a person to follow instructions. A person who follows instructions is wise and he/she will definitely get great results (this applies to both leaders and team members). In order to create a team/organisational culture where success can consistently thrive, it is important for you to be mindful of this.
