Rules for being the Manager

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power." Abraham Lincoln

 > You are creating your own business and we sincerely wish you all the success in the world.

Once your business starts to flourish, you will no doubt find yourself in charge of the other people who will be working with you and for you. Now this may be just one or two people to begin with but later on it might become a dozen or two, or even hundreds and who knows, perhaps you’ll end up in charge of an organization that employs thousands.


 The numbers are pretty much irrelevant because the important thing is being a good manager to all of the people in the organization, regardless of exactly how many colleagues you are actually managing.

Not only is this ethically the right thing to do but it’s the best business thing to do too. Because a happy and contented personnel will always be better for the company than a group of people that are forever complaining and whining and grouchy with their colleagues and maybe even with your customers.

So it’s important to get your management strategy right.



Managing people is in my opinion The Most Difficult thing in the world to do.

Many businesses have gone down the drain because of poor management. It is therefore important to know a few basic rules about being the boss. It’s not just as simple as you giving the orders and everyone else jumping to obey. Businesses are not military academies.


Here below are Robinson’s 10 Rules for being a first-rate and competent, capable and proficient Boss.

Rule 1: As the Manager, you accept the responsibilities that go with managing the members of your team.
Rule 2: You set the goals for each team member.
Rule 3: Make sure that the objectives you set, even though aggressive remain attainable. They must be accepted by each individual and should be measurable.
Rule 4: High performances are recognized and rewarded. Inadequacies are analysed together and an improvement strategy is jointly agreed on.
Rule 5: Each member of the team is given the possibility to bring into play initiative and creativity.
Rule 6: We all have the right to make a mistake.
Rules 7: You’re the Boss so you make the decisions and make them fast.
Rules 8: The manager will behave towards the members of the team with the esteem that befits a group of intelligent, well behaved and professional people.
Rules 9: The good manager will assist all members of the group to develop and grow their own personal careers.
Rules 10: Lead by example, by behaving ethically and responsibly at all times.
