My former boss had a very special “alarm clock” management method. It will honor employees and give employees a great sense of “achievement.” Once, the boss confessed to our department to do one thing. He said that when he had finished the tax filing this month, he would meet with us. CNC spindle
“When will the boss want to see?” We asked the head of department privately. “It will be seen after the tax has been processed.” The head of department simply repeats the boss’s words because he does not know when the boss is looking for him to meet. As a result, our entire department was nervous and we worked hard and worked hard all day today because we did not know when the boss would meet with us.
As a result, there was no meeting today.
The next day, the boss passed our department seat and grabbed one of our colleagues. He smiled and said: “You must have done almost the same!” In fact, we still haven’t finished a large section. The boss asked this question. Startled! The colleague said in a panic: “Fortunately, we are still doing the final treatment!” “Well, when I finish the tax treatment, I’ll come to the meeting.” The boss said.
As a result, on that day we worked harder than the previous day and it was almost finished before we got off work. At the moment of completion, the entire department was very happy and went to eat a small celebration party.
The next day, the boss once again passed through our department seat. Our colleagues could not wait to prepare to speak with the boss and say that we have finished! However, no one has said yet. The boss asked him first. “That thing …,” said the boss, “You are so good, you will be very beautiful! I look forward to it!” CNC spindle
“Oh…” I replied, “Yes, thank you for your compliments. We will do a great job!” So on this day, we worked hard to repair the beauty of the document and ensure that every detail was fine. By the end of the third day, this work has been fantastic. We are very happy because we feel that “we are really too strong” and that three days can be so great! It was the fourth day. Finally, the boss came to our department to meet. On the spot, the boss just blinked. “Well, you did a good job. It really was a group of good-minded young people.” The boss smiled and said: “I haven’t finished yet?”
Not finished? Hey days! We have actually finished it. However, seeing that the boss believed so much and valued us, we quickly said that yes, there are still some things to be strengthened. This is the first edition. We will soon have a second edition! So we went back and made another three days. Repeatedly, again and again. Later, this project took a total of 2 months.
It was 20 times later than the day when we guessed that we wanted to “cope”. How can this be so bad!
However, it is interesting. Later I jumped to another company for another opportunity. I learned that the original project was actually up to three months. Under the leadership of the boss, our department not only completed the project two months ago, namely “early”, but also completed a very, very perfect project. The most important thing is that from beginning to end, we did not feel that we were forced to go by time. CNC spindle
We seem to be really a very strong department. Our head is shining, full of glory, and very powerful. And the work we did was really taken to the global head office as a model. That work has become the biggest achievement of everyone in our department during the work of that company!
No matter what happens during the period, we finally only remember that our department was “actively” completed in just two months. We have “proactively” done so beautifully, and we have “proactively” done so…. We are a super department! Micro Signal: Lean Production Promotion Center.
But who is the hero behind the scenes? Although we all feel that it is the result of “self-initiated,” we must say that the boss, his peculiar management style, allowed us to make works that we all admired. At that time I had a realization that the poorer leaders constantly set various “alarm clocks”. The employees underneath must do what they can do in a few days in a few months and what they must accomplish in a few days and months.
After completion, it is just “completed.” The stronger leader, “will never let the alarm clock ring.” The job without an alarm clock is to constantly do better and do better. In fact, there was an alarm clock, but the boss never let it ring. CNC spindle
Before I heard a father share how he called his child to get up, it was very interesting: “The alarm clock rings, and sleep for five minutes!” said his father.
However, five minutes have yet to arrive and the alarm clock has not yet sounded a second time. The dad went to the bed again to remind the child. “There are four minutes!” The child rolled over and cried. After a while, Dad walked to the bed again.
“Three more minutes!” Then he went to the bed. “There are still two minutes!” In fact, this time, five minutes has already arrived, but the alarm clock does not ring. Because, this dad deliberately let it never ring! “One minute and 30 seconds!” At this time, the child has already got up!
The dad said that the alarm clock does not ring. In the child’s heart, he is “self” to get up, rather than “the alarm clock forced him” to get up. In doing so, let the children develop a “good habit” that is done afterwards, completed automatically, and has a sense of accomplishment.
As a result, the child always felt that he was a “spontaneous” good boy! In each painful wake-up, after the child actually got up, he was confirmed to be an automatic good child. This confidence will stay with him and come to the back of life. Never let the alarm clock ring, let each participant feel that it is their own initiative to do a good thing, not others. This management method is the finest art. CNC spindle
