THIRD SECRET OF SUCCESS

21-Oct-2010 - Les Hayman Being able to update your resume (curriculum vitae) every year is an important part of success. I am not suggesting that you update it and put it out on the street, just that you need to be able to update the contents every year, and that you sh... Lesen Sie mehr »

SECOND SECRET OF SUCCESS

07-Oct-2010 - Les Hayman “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.” Alvin Toffler I am often amazed that so many people seem to not understand that learning is a journey and not a des... Lesen Sie mehr »

GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH

01-Sep-2014 - Les Hayman I have taken the above quotation from American founding father, politician and orator Patrick Henry (1736-1799) from a speech that he made to the Virginia Convention in 1775. He was obviously referring to personal, political and national freedom ... Lesen Sie mehr »

THE MANAGEMENT ART OF COOKING

16-Jun-2014 - Les Hayman “Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.” Newspaper columnist and writer Harriet Van Horne (1920-1998). I love to cook (even though I am at best an enthusiastic beginner), ever since my wife once gave me, as a ... Lesen Sie mehr »

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

09-Jun-2014 - Les Hayman The aphorism “Knowledge is power” (Scientia potential est) has been mostly attributed to author and philosopher Francis Bacon (1561-1626), even though this is not quite what he said. In his “Meditations Sacre” (1597) he does say “Ipsa scientia po... Lesen Sie mehr »

WHAT DEFINES A GREAT JOB

26-May-2014 - Les Hayman I recently had the privilege of speaking to a group of young business graduates in London about how to manage their careers. It was an exciting couple of hours for me, and helped to reinforce my belief that every generation is smarter, more excit... Lesen Sie mehr »

NOT ALL MANAGERS ARE CREATED EQUAL

07-Apr-2014 - Les Hayman “We are all flawed, but basically effective managers are people whose flaws are not fatal under the circumstances. Maybe the best managers are simply ordinary, healthy people who are not too screwed up”. Canadian academic and author Henry Mintzbe... Lesen Sie mehr »

BUSYNESS OR BUSINESS … THAT IS THE QUESTION

17-Feb-2014 - Les Hayman “Some people can look so busy doing nothing that they seem indispensable”. American cartoonist and journalist Kin Hubbard (1868-1930) I was interested to read recently that Goldman Sachs has announced that it will lessen the workload for its bank... Lesen Sie mehr »

THE LESSONS THAT MANAGERS CAN LEARN FROM SINGAPORE

23-Sep-2013 - Les Hayman I have been a big fan of Singapore, and in particular of its founder Dr. Lee Kwan Yew, since I first visited the island in 1977. I had the privilege of living and working there for over 6 years, before being transferred to Europe, and after an ab... Lesen Sie mehr »

WHY MANAGEMENT TRAINING RARELY WORKS

01-Jul-2013 - Les Hayman It’s what you learn after you know it all that really counts. I have long been of the opinion that most formal corporate management training sessions actually deliver very little real benefit to the participants, beyond making them feel good abou... Lesen Sie mehr »

EVERY COMPANY NEEDS PEOPLE WHO CAN REGULARLY FAIL

27-May-2013 - Les Hayman “I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying. I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over an... Lesen Sie mehr »

MANAGEMENT TIME STEALERS AND WASTERS

25-Mar-2013 - Les Hayman I have long believed that whilst we should not count every hour in the day, we should try and make every hour in the day count. We are all given the same 24 hours in every day regardless of who or what we are, and while we can’t actually manage t... Lesen Sie mehr »

MANAGERS SOLVE PROBLEMS

11-Mar-2013 - Les Hayman I believe that one of the key critical skills of anyone in a management role is the ability to be able to solve problems, despite my loving the fact that Albert Einstein said “Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them”. Photograph by Or... Lesen Sie mehr »

19-Nov-2012 - Les Hayman The first rule of management is that successful management is actually more about how you manage yourself rather than being about how you manage others (see “First rule of management” posted June 25, 2012). The second rule of management is that t... Lesen Sie mehr »

FOURTH RULE OF MANAGEMENT

WHY NEAR ENOUGH IS MOSTLY GOOD ENOUGH

15-Oct-2012 - Les Hayman “As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.” Albert Einstein via Wikimedia Commons I have realized over my 40 year career that in most business situati... Lesen Sie mehr »

SECOND RULE OF MANAGEMENT

TO BE OR NOT TO BE … A MANAGER

20-Aug-2012 - Les Hayman The best job I ever had was being a computer salesman for Digital Equipment Corporation in the 1970’s. I was the only one in my territory of the South Island of New Zealand and my boss was miles away in Auckland so I saw him only rarely. I shared... Lesen Sie mehr »

HOW TO SURVIVE AN INCOMPETENT BOSS

11-Jun-2012 - Les Hayman We have all at one time or another been really disappointed with our boss, if for example it is because we believed that he had made some bad choices, struggled too long with a decision, or promoted someone who was more politician than profession... Lesen Sie mehr »

WHEN YOU KNOW IT IS TIME TO CHANGE COMPANIES

19-Feb-2012 - Les Hayman I have always believed that people join companies, but leave managers. Surveys tell us that over 70% of corporate departures are because an employee was not able to build a working relationship with his immediate supervisor, which seems logical a... Lesen Sie mehr »

IT’S NOT ABOUT THE MONEY …..

24-Oct-2011 - Les Hayman I understand that the salary that you are paid for the work that you do is important, but there are many things that are more important if you want to have a successful career, and to ultimately do well. By Hersfold; via Wikimedia Commons Here ... Lesen Sie mehr »

FIRST SECRET OF TIME MANAGEMENT

23-Sep-2010 - Les Hayman Can anyone really manage time? We all get allocated exactly the same amount, just 24 hours per day, and yet some people never seem to have enough time and always have a growing mountain of undone tasks, and others seem to be able to do an incredi... Lesen Sie mehr »

I LIVE TO WORK OR I WORK TO LIVE

05-Jul-2010 - Les Hayman The great thing about being a Manager is that you only have one primary objective. All you have to do is to create an environment where people can be unbelievably successful. I understand that this is easier to say than to do, but it’s not a bad ... Lesen Sie mehr »
