Performance Evaluation

weather: rainshowers
outside: 1.5°C
mood: ...
People may think that a manager's job is telling people what to do, but a lot of people don't realize that it doesn't actually work that way. No. It's really the other way around. You lead by servicing your staff.


A good leader is one who knows that, in reality, YOU work for THEM.

And whether you realize it or not, you get that. You clear roadblocks for people, you remove obstacles, you're there for them... AND you make it fun.

You really get it.

                                                  — H. M. R.

Loosely paraphrasing my IT Director at my recent performance evaluation.

O_O     I didn't realize it. So... whoa.

You know, I didn't realise it until you wrote it out this way, but it really makes sense to me. All the best bosses I had didn't just tell me what to do. They made my job easier, not by removing responsibilities, but by finding ways to make work fun for me and by developing me to become the best contributor I could be.

^^ So good job on your performance evaluation and job! *thumbs up*

That's really very true.

Congratulations - it's really something to achieve that as well :) I'm glad your director recognised that!

Wow! What a nice thing to hear :)

I am going to forward that to Mike, he has his review today an his boss is being a thug. He needs to know that heis a good manager to his staff even though his boss is being a child.

Thanks for sharing that, way to go!

Congrats on that awesome review. It's rare that people recognize those qualities your director lists as what truly makes a team special. Most of the time, people are too busy thumping their chests, being the loudest one to be heard... It's very cool that you work for someone who recognizes those qualities in you and appreciates it.

The funniest thing is I think I _am_ the loudest person in the office. I'll randomly burst out laughing when I see a bug that can be construed as something funny, for example.

I joked that I don't really know what I do around the office except run around screaming and laughing =D
