Creating good employees. Part 10 

Getting the job done!

This is often the most important thing in a workplace. Someone drops the ball. An individual calls in sick and the show must go on. In this company, the show had to go on.  

While the company was and is micromanaged to an intolerable level… The job gets done even with the disorganized chaos that happens each day. I was not a consultant here, I was part of the system.  

A very broken, very totalitarian, dictatorship of a system…  

If I knew then, what I know today, “Covid” excluded from that knowledge I may never have made the move. But then I would not be writing about this particular endeavour. Also, I would not have done so many other things. Shit happens and everything happens for a reason.  

The dictator.  

After having been brought in to fix the internals of this massive company… I quickly found out that no one had a job here. Everyone had several jobs and yet it seemed that everyone had their jobs done by others.  

This particular company was and is so layered and jobs are so covered up that half the employees could be and should be dismissed.  

That is not the point. The employees are the point and this was a place that brewed bad employees. It was and is a cesspool of excuses, absent-mindedness and disorganization all because of the way this company is run.  

The boss! 

While the job gets done in nearly all companies, the what, where and how of it all is where the buck stops…  

Imagine a healthy wealthy company that could and should tweak its systems. Do not wait to blame your staff for the inadequacies and inefficiencies that you as a boss have created. Instead, imagine a good or bad company having its internals cleaned and serviced. It is the only way to truly know how good your staff is.  

I do not blame the workers, I blame the leaders.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
