February 24, 2011
The past 4 days, there have been construction coming in to my apartment everyday to deal with the leaking water in my window. The team was consist of 4 main guy which one of them was the person contacting, another one is the working leader and the other two are the helper. The reason i brought this up is because the main leader which just do the contacting just came to negotiate how many days and hours each day it will take to complete the task. The instruction was then sent to the working leader who didn't look too happy with the time table. This burden was then also passed on to the helper because they believe that the task wasn't reasonable with the amount of time. This have really created a significant management by objective situation for the helper, thus when i was spectating the work done, it was jush a completion more than quality of the work done (i knew this because of the conversation they were saying while they were working upon it). Furthermore, the boss just come up the end of everyday just to make sure things are done according to plan ignoring the quality of work because he does not know what is good until the final progress is done. This is a clear example in which leader doesn't communicate well with the worker and just want to please the customer by accepting any offer given. This type of leadership is just an example in which i want to share that small things like this do really happen in the real world.
