Using mind control tactics to manipulate employees©

L. Day
Honestly, this paper will not teach you “mind control”, but it will give you a slightly better understanding of working with people. The thing about people is that we are all the same, yet we are all so very different. But as you begin to understand how this uniqueness manifests in others and what drives certain behaviors, we can learn to alter our behavior and communication. This will help in better anticipating and strategizing in working with different personalities to accomplish goals and tasks.
What makes a business successful? Maybe it’s the right idea at the right time, maybe a high quality product? But what I and many others would argue is that one of the most important factors is having a good team. What good is a great, new idea without the people to back it up and see it to fruition? How do you continue to produce a quality product without a team to create, manage, and distribute it? Think of it from a financial standpoint. I have heard countless conversations in the industry about labor being one of the biggest expenditures in the business. If you have a job to do, you want someone who is well suited for that job that will do it well. You would not buy a screwdriver to use it as a hammer. Obviously it is capable of doing the job of a hammer, but without using its full ability. Utilizing the skill and talents of employees should not be any different.
