TRUMP: GENERALLY GOOD ON PRINCIPLE BUT LOUSY ON DETAILS AND FOLLOW THROUGH!!!

It is not too astounding that Trump is right about the crisis immigration situation in need of just laws and enforcement, right about the lopsided trade favoring many allies, China, and some foreign countries, right about the severe bias and even fake news of the left wing establishment media press, right about North Korea’s nuclear weapon’s threat, right about the do nothing stalemate of establishment Democrats and Republicans, generally right on gun use or control, right in wanting to reduce the oppressive size of government, etc.

Unfortunately, Trump is not very good at understanding the details involved in passing actual legislative laws and the details of foreign diplomacy and is not very willing to spend time learning the details and evaluating the opinions and facts of opposing views. Trump seems to be a talking president and not one that does a lot of serious thinking or analysis before he makes comments or decisions. He is an impulsive seat of the pants talker who gets easily offended and fights back with a vengeance.

His authoritative top down command tendencies and incredible balls and ego make it seem that he feels that he is a know it all who needs no advice or consultation on many issues. He is not one that inspires trust and loyalty from those who work under him and he is frankly not a typical politician skilled in the art of persuasion.

Even though his gut ideas and many statements are often valid he lacks loyal troops or political assistants who can effectively promote his desired policies and transform them into law. Trump is sometimes inconsistent in his demands or proclamations and sometimes leaves his supporters wondering how serious he is on some issues since he deviates from a pure dogmatic stance on some issues from time to time and seems unpredictable. Many times it seems that he is one man alone fighting against the old dysfunctional political, celebrity, and media establishment and that is why there is still some support among the rank and file common American.

Trump knows the value of publicity whether good or bad and has established himself as a larger than life individual who definitely has name recognition worldwide. Unless there is a stock market crash and the economy tanks, Trump will probably win reelection in 2020. In the meantime, try to enjoy the tumultuous political roller coaster ride while it lasts. The bureaucracy without all the supposedly needed leaders at the top is rolling along quite nicely and it is just proof that the president is merely a figurehead without much political control. Big money is still making most of the political decisions no matter what the president wants or says.

THE TRUTH ABOUT MANAGING***

formation-management-equipe

Manage: v. to control the action(s) of a human(s)  (with a command(s) and/or by showing what is to be done) and/or (by interacting and trying to solve a problem(s) and/or by trying to use emotional intelligence) and achieve a desired goal(s)

You can manage someone by commanding them and/or by showing them what is to be done. “Do your job” may be an authoritarian style of management where there is relatively minimal interaction between the manager and the managed.

The more interaction there is between the manager and managed the more it becomes a teamwork effort where both interchange ideas on how to do the job. In teamwork the manager frequently interacts with the managed and tries to solve a problem(s) together for optimal effect.

Management styles vary depending on how well defined the job is. If the job has clear rules and operates with little management then an authoritarian form of leadership can work relatively well.

If on the other hand the job is dynamic with many variations and no clear rules of operation then more interaction between the leader and led may be necessary to reach desired goals. Teamwork is frequently more effective in situations where the goals change from job to job or where different skills may be necessary with different personnel changes to achieve a goal(s).

Effective management means much emotional intelligence or the ability to make the managed feel good about their job and feel that they are a vital contributing factor in a job or project. Maintaining a sense of selfworth in the managed is important. Harsh or mean criticism, put downs, name calling, unnecessary threats, and ridicule should not be used in management managed interactions which can all create a dysfunctional,  inefficient working atmosphere.

Management is a leadership skill which can vary and be different depending on the nature of the job but emotional intelligence is necessary in leading any job and the humans in it.
