Hi Melissa,I really enjoyed the article, especially the part about company veterans suddenly becoming overshadowed by people with more specialized skills and, well, better skills. This is something most business owners don't think about when their business starts to grow.

Thanks Lina. The key to potentially changing one's leadership style is to first identify which style/s one has, and then figuring out how the team responds and performs with the style of leadership. If I find that I lack the appropriate style to lead a successful team, some soul-searching and introspection tends to help. I reassess my actions, noting that "it's not about me", humble myself and try my hardest to lead in a way that best supports my team. Happy to discuss further offline. Cheers

Great article. Interesting discussion on different styles of management, it must be difficult to change your style though if it's not quite what you want it to be? would be very interesting to hear how you might change your management style if it's lacking.

Although I mostly agree, I think caution needs to be taken. I've worked at places previously that "very strongly recommended" that you like their Facebook page or share the company updates on your own social media. The problem is, that creates disdain within employees. It is essentially being forced to share with something that you might not agree with or like (and it seems like you are personally endorsing it - since you work there and share it). People were seriously dinged on their "performance reviews" for lack of participation. That is not okay. So with that in mind, a roll out must be done correctly and presented as optional with no ill impacts on your actual job performance.

Definitely an interesting article. However, I tend to agree with Lina on the flattery tactic. It seems like it could backfire with a small miscalculation. Also, group interviewing may seem like a "time-saver" but you are putting candidates into an awkward position. Applicants that are more introverted may be less inclined to speak up or embellish putting them at a disadvantage to those that are more outspoken or don't mind stretching the truth to catch your attention. Group interviews can create a hostile environment where every candidate that answers successively tries to out do the previous candidate answers regardless of truth. One of the largest problems I've faced working with recruiters personally is that they have their own agenda. Meaning, they could care less what position I'm interested or the opportunities I'm seeking. Most recruiters would rather try to fit a square peg into a round hole than try to find the right position for a great candidate. Also, something I think the recruiter industry as a whole needs to work on is building legitimate and long-term relationships with potential candidates. If you throw jobs I'm uninterested (either role or location) or constantly send me every job req you get. I'll tune you out after 1 or 2 emails. In fact recruiters I'm dealing with lately have me wondering if I need to start an email list that sends them sarcastic pictures of cats with snarky retorts (and yes I would lump all of the recruiters into the "To:" line without blind copying them, because they deserve to know how many of them aren't approaching the job the correct way. Don't focus on "flourish" focus on personal connections and actually adding value. Applicants don't like to feel like they are being gamed for some secondary purpose.

Interesting article, although the tactic of hand-picking and flattering seems like it could be quite problematic, unless you hire all those you "flatter". There might be some potential for bad blood there?

a Provide them a safe environment, appropriate work and a good community. From what we've seen here in the Philippines, giving older people something to do makes for a longer, healthier and happier life. Those that sit around at home slowly waste away: they become weaker, they forget more. But the ones who work on something or have a project that preoccupies generally live longer and have a shine on their faces.

Definitely a great write up. Culture is very important. The main point that it can't just become a hollow statement is doubly important. Employees need to see the actions behind the words (in fact they may just need to see the actions). When only lip-service is paid to culture, people will bemoan meetings that come off as totally tone deaf. If you are telling them to do as you say and not as you do, you're setup for losing great employees and undermining the goals of your company.
