In my new job I’m at last getting back to REAL operational management which means getting my hands dirty. I didn’t realise how much I’d missed it
As Business Development Manager (grand title eh?) I love the new job and doing important jobs like cleaning toilets; cooking meals; making tea for customers and sweeping car parks; THIS STUFF SHOULD BE COMPULSORY FOR ALL MANAGERS.
It’s wonderfully liberating and it sure beats writing those ‘important’ reports in the healthcare business that no one ever reads!
I propose that no manager should be allowed to collect their monthly wage unless they can prove they spent at least 20% of the preceding month actually working on the front line.
There just is no better learning than actually DOING STUFF that all those pretentious, arrogant managers consider ‘menial.’
‘Menial’ rules in my book!
