One of the biggest challenges for leaders, is that many of them have to leave the line of absolute control over your computer . This concept, is what today is called “Management In Pervasive“.
Much of what we call management, is difficult for people to work, more help
— Peter Drucker
The basic idea is to work with a style closer to Silicon Valley companies. These companies are run by engineers and creative, rather MBA's. I'm in Silicon Valley, team management is not just another operational function, such as the sales teams or financial, and all those working to support the engineering and creativity that are really driving the company financially. Namely, the core of the organization, what are those in contact with the design of products or services reach the customer, and the rest are departments to support them.
Anyway, How to achieve this so that the company does not end poorly managed?
The solution is managers must have a minimally invasive management.
Managers and leaders should be facilitators of the people who create the products or services purchased by the customer.
The role of middle managers and executives must be only, enable people to do their work, namely, eliminate bureaucracies, bottlenecks and difficulties. Must be the "Oilers"Machinery.
When a company creates, initial equipment is usually quite small, namely, some 5 the 6 people. Later the company grows and adds coordinators teams and departments. This creates conflicts, communication decays, and decisions are taken by consensus, but for some people who are not in touch with the real world which leads to decline in productivity and competitiveness.
In the world of minimally invasive management , managers have four main tasks: must hiring key personnel their departments to work perfectly , need develop its employees, must create the space for these is automotive, and finally have to coordinate all his works, coordinate but not control.
Hiring the best people is the easiest way to build a high performance team. If you hire with bad eye, end up putting out fires that your team is unable to resolve. If you hire smart and well your teams develop the skills necessary to continue to grow professionally, can spend more time on issues such as strategy , innovation and goal setting.
A good manager works these areas from the base of the confidence, so most of the time need to change the control, by confidence in their equipment and think well oiled machine gears, more than control that are rotating.
