The Human Way

In this counter-intuitive book for managers, the author argues that no one is perfect and that success as a leader is not about being perfect and always doing the right thing; it is about accepting your own humanity and adopting a number of down-to-earth attitudes and values. That’s when we achieve true (adequate) success.
Through ten commandments – starting with “Be humble – as a manager, you are also an employee” – management expert Kelly Odell provides a new perspective on how we should behave as managers in this age of differing cultures and values. How we think about people, motivation, power and relationships is the foundation for successful management. Odell argues that too much emphasis is placed on the leader setting a good example and becoming a (heroic) role model, when in fact a leader whose priority is on other people is more likely to create value for their company and succeed as a manager.

Dedication

In 2012, the Chinese company Huawei Technologies overtook Ericsson to become the world’s largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer, firmly establishing itself on the world business map. Today, it has over 170,000 employees worldwide and in 2014 the company generated a remarkable profit of $5.5 billion. Whilst research and development and the technology that results from it are core drivers of Huawei’s success, the company’s amazing growth is also determined by its human resource strategy. This is based on a “customer-first” attitude, the belief that obtaining opportunities is through hard work and, above all, “a dedication to do the best in anything we do”. How Huawei promotes this dedication amongst its workforce is the subject of this important book. Through original incentive systems, employee ownership and the mentality to act like a boss, Huawei has managed to create a culture of dedication that has become the bedrock of its growth today.
