You cannot have progress without the cooperation. And you cannot count on the collaboration, if you do not have communication. You must be able to communicate what to do, but you have to cross what is important. Now, if you’re in the army or working for the government, then you probably will not need to explain why something must be done in a particular way, just do it.
But in the real world, there are many benefits for your business does not function as a tyrant or a dictator. Of course, the final decision is yours, but if you cannot get everyone to buy into what is happening, you have serious problems keeping qualified people working for you. You can keep one or two, if family members are waiting for you die to collect his inheritance, but if you want to create a long-term process that continues to grow, you need others to believe that worth of them.
It comes down to how to treat people, and yes, perhaps your work and if they do not like, they can always leave, but to explain and discuss with them as people go a long way to go individuals feel loyal and happy. And a happy worker is a loyal and happy worker is more productive. You do not want to spoil and lose respect between management levels, but do not want to hate people who are supposed to be watching and listening.
And communication between these levels is what keeps everything moving in the right direction. Men and women react to the way they are treated and whether they are still the hammer is in them and eventually lost all nice people who want to keep around. It certainly does not mean you have to baby them; you just have to treat them as people and goods, and replaceable parts of machines.
It will go a long way in the attitude they bring with them on their way to the building every morning. When things need to be change or adjust, explain why the new road will be better and try not only to spring into the world without any warning in advance.
