Creating good employees. Part 15 

Moving forward as a team. 

In part 14 I mentioned about the ownership of ideas. Having an idea or coming up with great ideas is amazing. I had so many ideas that I thought were amazing, but… Not everyone thought so.  

A great example of this was at the family business where even though we owned the business, we needed to make sure the supervisors understood the ideas.  

There was no better way to bring them on board than to show them. This is one aspect of any business that a boss should be able to do. You must be able to stand behind your claims. When we made product changes and reduced piecework times I was able to perform the job within the allowed time. Stand behind your work, idea or claims with proof. 

Speak softly. 

Another great aspect of a good boss in my eyes the one who is always on an even keel. Being known for staying calm under pressure and keeping an even tone at all times gives others confidence. Yet if that boss, the one who is calm yells at someone one day, they know the shit has hit the fan. 

The boss who always screams and yells and puts people down is a scared dog. There is no right or merit for screaming and yelling. If that is the case, find another job.  

Speaking in a calm manner also dictates authority and calmness and provides others with a better lane of communication. Since communication is key, your job, business and future depend on it.  

Let’s communicate. 

Being a good boss and creating great employees can only come when people communicate.  

Just because there is a boss or a CEO they should not be above anyone and looked upon as Gods.  

No boss is above anyone else in reality. They may be above you by title but not above you in any other way. The janitor, the cook, the security guard and you are all the same just performing a different job. The cogs in the wheel of life and the cogs in the company itself should have no hierarchy. As parts of a car must work together so must the company.  

Most people forget that they are part of so much more. From morning coffee to the bus or Uber ride, to the contribution to society, you are part of something so much bigger.  

Look at the big picture. 

Most people forget and often feel small. Most people do not realize that we are floating in space on this marble of ours. So look up at the skyscrapers, look around at the beauty of this planet and forgive the things that do not necessarily work.  

Look at the big picture and see how you fit in. Often people get stuck in a rut, they stay still and are afraid to move forward. It could be your job, your personal life. Look at the big picture and see if you are where you thought you would be. Career and personal choices go hand in hand. Be the boss of your life and be the person you wish to be.

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.
