Secret Techniques of the Successful Moral Manager
by MARVIN PIRILA
Effective managers know how to maximize the efforts of employees and the means available to them (equipment, processes, etc.). They maintain a long-term vision of the desired direction, while working through day-to-day operations. The greatest common denominator of all great people is their commitment to living a moral, value-based life. Strict morals (honesty, integrity, character, etc.) allow a person to avoid the pitfalls that befall so many men and women. Successful people know that they pay thousands of time for doing immoral things. Your conscience becomes occupied with guilt. Continued denial of wrongdoing furthers your erosion of character. Others can see what you so desperately try to keep hidden and begin to question your character. Strong moral values expand your influence while immorality restricts. Successful individuals program their minds with positive thoughts. Along those lines, we must accept failures as a necessary requirement for success.

This is a well written and informative write. I had tried once to be an assistant manager at a store I worked at a few years ago and I crumpled under the pressure. There was hardly any communication between the employees and the boss's and that made for a sort of hostile working inviroment. I moved on after several employees quit and I just didnt wanna deal with it anymore. Anyways back to the review, I think there are alot of helpfull tips in here and it would benefit anyone wanting to be a manager to read this. Well done, great read. Thanx for sharing.
