WaveRiders as a company (the way I have depicted it to be in my PMA) is quite lagging in its leadership style as it does not empower the workforce to be creative and innovative in its approach.
If anything, MBE has taught me (up till now) the value of the workforce and how they need to be treated fairly in order for an organization to gain long-term success. No company or organization can gain success with an unhappy workforce. There will be no creativity or will to work within an organization if this was the case.
It’s fairly logical. Observing organizations with a high turn over of employees it is obvious it is because the workforce is not happy and wishes to find better means of employment. Gone are the days when money used to hold highest value when it came to worker motivation.
Scientific management is quite outdates even though some of its principles are still applicable in most countries today it developed economies they are less likely to work.
In todays highly educated and fast paced work environment organizations need to LEAD their work force and not manage them like cattle. Workers need to be inspired to motivate them to work. Money is not the answer to everything.
Leaders need to realize the necessity of being an inspiration to their subordinates and to involve them in every phase of the company’s progress towards success.
In my opinion, managers and leaders should treat their workforce the way they would WANT to be treated in order to make them more motivated in the long run.
