The Ideal Boss is a Non-Boss

Fred Gratzon – The Lazy Way to Success – schildert, wie er als Nicht-Chef agiert:

Occasionally people ask me how I reconcile my not wanting to do any work with my expecting employees to do their jobs. It seems like a contradiction.

I point out that I hate work and I avoid it completely. I also point out that I hate to be bossed and I can’t imagine anyone else who likes it either. So basically I do unto others as I would have them do unto me. I don’t want to be bossed so I don’t boss others. I don’t like to work so I don’t require anyone to do it either. It is as simple as that.

People then ask how I get employees to do things.

I explain that I do it by turning the work into play. I make the job fun. I make it irresistibly exciting. I make it seductively challenging. I show how their part fits into and advances the whole. My employees then happily motivate themselves and don’t need to be bossed.

It works like magic – for them and me.

Die Arbeit zum Spiel erklären? Dafür sorgen, dass der Job Spass macht? Den Mitarbeitern aufzeigen, wie und was sie zum Ganzen beitragen?

Hey, lieber Fred, das nennst Du „non-bossing“? Das ist Boss-Sein – zumindest wie das heutzutage hier in der alten Welt praktiziert wird! Aber es freut mich, dass Ihr es a) auch erkannt und b) daraus eine prächtige Marketing-Story strickt ;-)

The ideal boss is a boss who respects employees as adult and reasonable human beings – and interacts accordingly.
