        导语:一个糟糕的老板可以挑到一个好职员,却糟蹋之。从而导致那些最为优秀的职员欲逃离之,而仍留守者却失去了动力
 

        你听说过海鸥式管理吗?

        海鸥式管理者飞进来,咋咋呼呼嚷嚷一片,还给每个人拉了抛屎,然后,便呼啸飞走了。

        这么个概念说法,就在肯.布兰查德(Ken Blanchard那本名为领导才能与一分钟管理者的书中,颇为普遍。

        海鸥式管理者的到来,通常也就在问题发生的时候才出现。他们总会怪罪每一个人,并指责他人的不是。他们会将每一微乎其微之实际解决方案,都归咎为问题所在。当事情运作良好时,他们也难有美言。而是,他们总把聚焦转移到他们自己的身上,让其更为光彩夺目。海鸥式的管理操作,可能象征着,某类管理者,他们实未经过培训、毫无经验,抑或新被任命的管理者。

        你曾与海鸥式管理者共事过吗?

        某一海鸥式管理者的行为。

        最近,我一哥儿们辞职了。为何呀?

        因为,他共事了一位海鸥式管理者。

        他原本有一个非常好的职业,且他是由猎头相中而到该公司工作的。

        然而,很快便清楚到,那实在非合适之处。该管理者每天总是颠覆着轻重缓急,弄得不必要之抓狂,且还总玷污着其手下的声誉。

总之,该经营者也并未善待大家。他曾走访一家餐厅。他公司就拥有着该餐厅所在的大厦。他走到前台点了些吃的。当服务生要求付账时,该管理者顿时对其不悦,道:你不知道我是谁吗?我就是这里的业主,我吃东西是免费的。

        接着,该经营者便抓起自己的食物,气冲冲地出门走了。

        我的朋友实在忍不下去了。他尤其不喜欢周一。其理由是:该管理者总会在周五那天由于些什么事情而不满。那么,该管理者便期望每人都于周末处理之。而周一时,该管理者却已对此忘得一干二净了。它已并非那么所谓了。我的朋友却因此倍觉沮丧。因为,他白耗了其周末,却仅为了干些并非再需要的事情。

        因此,我朋友便辞掉算了。

       切勿与海鸥式管理者共事。

       我们所获人生只有一次。让我们切勿将其耗费于与某个海鸥式管理者之共事上。

       我的朋友辞职后,该管理者曾请求我朋友回来。因此,我朋友便回来了,却也短暂。他当时就希望该管理者会有所改变。然而。该管理者却依然故我。因此,我朋友,便彻底走人。

       与这样的当家人共事,只会锐气受挫。且还会一定程度地影响着我们的人生。一个被低劣的经营者所造成的痛苦,甚至还会渗透你的个人生活中去。

       管理者应该远好于如此。假设你的管理者果真这般表现,请劝其改变。然而,如果他不改,那么,就请另寻高就、找个更好的当家人。人生太短,时非可待。

A Bad Boss Can Destroy Everything

Have you heard of Seagull Management? Seagull managers fly in, make a lot of noise, poop on everyone, then fly out.  This concept was popularized through Ken Blanchard’s book called, “Leadership and the One Minute Manager.” Seagull managers drop in only when there is a problem. They blame everyone else and criticize others. They contribute very little to the actual solution to the problem. When things are going well, they rarely offer praise. Instead, they draw attention to themselves to make them look good.  The seagull style of management may be indicative of a manager who is untrained, inexperienced or newly-appointed. Have you ever worked for a seagull manager?

A Seagull Manager in Action 

A friend of mine recently quit his job.

Why?

Because he was working for a seagull manager.

He had an excellent career and he was head hunted to work for this company.

But it became clear rather quickly that it wasn’t a good fit.

The manager would change priorities daily, get unnecessarily mad, and drag his staff through the mud.

The manager also didn’t treat people very well in general.

He once visited a restaurant. His company owned the building the restaurant was in. He went to the counter to order some food. The attendant asked for payment. And the manager got upset at the attendant. He said:

Don’t you know who I am?

I own this place and my food is free.  The manager grabbed his food stomped out.

My friend couldn’t take it anymore. He especially disliked Mondays. The reason is that the manager would be upset by something on Friday.  The manager would expect everyone to deal with it over the weekend. Then on Monday the manager would have forgotten about it. It wasn’t important anymore.  My friend was left feeling frustrated because he just wasted his weekend working on something that wasn’t necessary anymore.

So, my friend quit.

Don’t Work for a Seagull Manager

We only get one life. Let’s not waste it working for a seagull manager.

After my friend quit, the manager begged my friend to return. So, my friend did, briefly. He was hoping the manager would have change. But the manager didn’t. So, then my friend left for good.

Working with a manager like this is demoralizing. It affects our lives in some deep ways. The pain caused by a bad manager can even spill over into your personal life.

Managers should be so much better than this. If your manager acts like this, encourage him to change. But if he doesn’t, then look for a better job with a better manager. Life is just too short not to.
