The only thing that works is
management by values. Find people who are competent and really
but more importantly, people who care exactly about the same things
you care about.
Example: Jack Welch and GE
, the legendary former CEO of
GE, believed that the
only way to
lead is to talk about company's values, not numbers.
Welch said, "Numbers aren't the vision; numbers
are products. We always say that if you had three
measurements to live by, they'd be
customer satisfaction, and
cash flow. If you've got cash in the till at the end, the rest is all
going to work, because if you've got high customer satisfaction, you're
going to get a share.
If you've got high employee satisfaction, you're going to get productivity.
And if you've got cash, you know it's all working."...
