No Balls [ digital representation
The Facts, the whole Facts, and nothing but the Fair Facts on Managament.
Acrylic on canvas
You can never apply sterotypes and expect that they apply without question
to all. Having said that I've worked alongside and for a number of good
Managers. Few though if any have been inspirational leaders, deserving of
my utmost respect. The majority, it pains me to say win-out as being 'without
balls'. Male and female.
I too have been a Manager. I would leave after a days work when my workers
had all left. I made it a point to be the first to claim responsibility
for the consequences of my or my staff's ill-judgements. Not redirect that
blame. I'd be the first to claim success along-with and representative of
my staff. The first to offer recognition to those who strive toward and
achieve their own goals. Saying 'yes' and 'no' when appropriate. Charging
ahead with an educated opinion. While others around me doubted and chose
to go the easy way - avoiding or criticising that decision whilst awaiting
I hope that in the eyes of those I've lead, I've been a steadfast example
of integrity. I've set out to instill a sense of safety for some, and a
sense of strength for others. As I have had little example of such leadership,
in playing the role as I have, I've gained much personally. This piece represents
the way I see the facts, the fair and unbiased truth on Managers and Management.
As I've experienced them from delivering Pizzas in my teens to recent times.
