Is it time to review your employee policy? First, consider the consequences of adopting too many – or the wrong kind – of rules in the workplace. [aa_subtitle_display] Believe it or not, too many rules in your company for your employees can have a negative impact on their productivity. One of the things that suffers when your company has too many rules is group engagement. Too many company rules can give employees the impression that management doesn`t trust them and that their opinions don`t carry any weight in the company. Now that you`ve had time to think about the rules that currently apply in your teaching and learning environment, take a little more time to think: But I`m not just reading words. I also choose to say fewer words. Every day, I was sensitive to notice my tendencies too critical. I try to hold my tongue - 33 times out of 37 possible problems a day. I choose less expense to make an expense! Fewer battles – fewer hills to die on.
Needless to say, while it`s hard to learn, it`s ultimately a lot more fun (for them and for us!) There is more joy when you do not establish the law, but grant grace. Allow our children to bump into things and fight their mess instead of correcting all the childishness and noise, even missed homework, and lounging at the table. There are times to address these things, but not all day, in a never-ending flow. Here`s what I`m focusing on instead. Employees feel engaged when you put their opinions, talents, and ideas into practice. Company rules that employees deem unnecessary can thwart this sense of commitment. Employees may feel that their employer doesn`t trust them to use their best judgment, which can lead to feelings of frustration and helplessness. They may feel less inclined to do the work, knowing that their unique ideas and perspectives are not appreciated.
Stifling rules can scare away your best and most creative employees. Unnecessary and exaggerated rules can result in a plethora of paperwork and follow-ups that hinder real work. This not only hurts the profitability of your business, but also employee morale, as they constantly feel left behind in their work. If they don`t feel supported and stifled by the rules, you`ll certainly hear it from them, and it`s feedback that shouldn`t be taken lightly. It is better to highlight clear and understandable points as basic rules. "Follow the teacher`s instructions/adult" (you can add "given for the first time") leaves no room for misinterpretation and is therefore less likely to be the cause of questions, misunderstandings or denial. Taking a closer look at such a rule, one could say that there is no need for others! This places all the responsibility on the teacher/adult to teach and explain their instructions. This will eliminate the source of many challenges or confrontations, namely assumptions. I have chosen to let the banner of respect, responsibility and ingenuity fly over our homes these days. It is sometimes a moment-to-moment choice, but I am determined to reduce the long list of rules to a short list of virtues that will make them virtuous men. Who`s with me? This magazine is a reminder to review how many rules you expect from students, how they are put into practice, and how effective they seem to be. Yves Morieux, director of the Boston Consulting Group`s Institute for Organization, recently spoke in a Ted Talk about the dangers of too many rules in an organization.
on the grounds that they may impede productivity. However, there is a delicate balance between the "too much" and "just enough" rules that must be followed. Read on to learn more about this balance, the consequences of too many rules, and how to decipher where your business falls in the spectrum of it. If you show your rules and assume or expect all students to fully understand them, you should expect challenges. Hey parents, it`s good for me today. How about you? Do you strut as if you were the master of the house and rule it over your sons and daughters while suffering the consequences of all the rules they keep breaking? When I slip into this false higher mentality, I remind myself, "If I am joint heir with Christ, then I am joint heir of the kingdom of Christ with my children. I have to treat them like that. With the love and respect that the Son showed me. Filling out too much paperwork, catching up on too many administrative tasks, or constantly reviewing employees to make sure they are following processes and procedures appropriately could be a sign that you`ve passed too many regulations and should reduce them.
Two weeks later, I went to my eldest son`s math class (Someone is holding me, I just said "high school!") It was school night again and I was holding half a sheet of yellow paper with a short bell plan showing me when and where to go to meet all of Caleb`s teachers. It was his first year and I was both excited and nervous as I walked up the stairs and down the hallway. His first-period teacher, Mr. Pete, was waiting for us with a smile. I sat down and looked at the program in front of me, which contained another list of rules. This time, there were only three. And they didn`t even look like rules, more like a vision, a mantra, or a simple list of virtues. The rules help ensure that work is done properly and conscientiously, and provide guidelines for treating employees fairly. But when a company imposes too many rules, employees often feel suffocated – and even undervalued. The result? Decreased morale and motivation, which over time can affect productivity across the company – exactly the opposite effect management hopes to achieve.
Please don`t think we`ve encouraged disrespect, although I can read my own story that way. We were simply amazed at the weight of so many detailed instructions for a class of twenty 10-year-olds. When we put his package of instructions back in his bag, we encouraged Asher to do his best to honor his teacher and friends by following his rules at school. If rules are in place, some students will follow them, while many students will question and challenge them, leaving you with another problem to deal with.
