Best assets are people – Theory
“Organizations don’t really accomplish anything. Plans don’t accomplish anything, either. Theories of management don’t much matter. Endeavors succeed or fail because of the people involved. Only by attracting the best people will you accomplish great deeds.” General Powell.
In a brain-based economy, your best assets are people. We’ve heard this expression so often that it’s become hack. But how many leaders really “walk the talk” with this stuff?
People are also assumed to be empty Chess pieces in Pakistan:
Too often, people are assumed to be empty chess pieces to be moved around by grand viziers (high-ranking political advisor or minister) which may explain why so many top managers spend their calendar time in deal making, restructuring and the latest management fad.
Rule – Creating an environment where the best, the brightest, the most creative are attracted
How many attract themselves in the goal of creating an environment where the best, the brightest, the most creative are attracted, retained and— most importantly—unleashed? We will see the truth of the rule or sincerity in using it in coming days in Pakistan.
Shahbaz Sharif Style History – These Rules apply Here
Observers say Shahbaz Sharif, who became prime minister after the fall of Imran Khan, is likely to have a ‘hands-on style of governance’. He is known as a diligent administrator with such a great love of poetry that he often opens official meetings with recitals of famous revolutionary Urdu poets.
Shahbaz known more for his practical skills in implementing policy
Shahbaz became known more for his practical skills in implementing policy and for his ambitious development agenda. “Shahbaz is used to rolling up his sleeves and getting down into the nitty-gritty of work,”. “We will be seeing a workaholic in office who will obsess on issues of performance, governance and delivery.”
Shahbaz is seen to have a much better working relationship with army while not being as dependent to them as Khan was seen to be during most of his time in office.
“The military won’t be as involved in his administration as it was involved during Khan’s government, which was completely dependent on the army,” said Zahid Hussain, an author and political analyst.
“But one thing is clear, Shahbaz and the army will work closely together.”
Pakistani Generals Choice is the Same?
“Powell’s Rules for Picking People”—Look for intelligence and judgement and, most critically, a capacity to anticipate, to see around corners. Also look for loyalty, integrity, a high energy drive, a balanced ego and the drive to get things done.”
History will decide the leadership quality of our General’s decisions is the same or not. Let us Pray for the better future of Pakistan
