So some people have this notion about management that is all wrong.

- Management is not a right or entitlement.

- Management is a wonderful privilege!

The privilege comes with responsibility and is earned by knowing how to manage and treat your people right.

That means:

- Acting with integrity

- Treating people fairly, with dignity, and respect

- Showing you value them

- Helping to develop them

- And of course, achieving results together!

I heard it said well like this:

“If you don’t treat people well

you won’t be a manager for long.”

Again, it’s a privilege, not a right, to manage and lead others.

Those who abuse their privilege and people — it’s like the cycle of life. ;-)
