    Combatting unsolicited advice from your staff

    Opinions often come freely; learn to find value in what works, what does not for the practice


    While you may agree or disagree with the other person speaking and their managerial style, they might have experience in the area that you are trying to navigate. If you are willing to keep to your beliefs, “keep intact your roots” that define you and your world, but also be willing to “change the leaves” and bend a little to shed some of the old thought processes, you may find the answers you are seeking.

    3.     “There are two kinds of fools: those who can't change their opinions and those who won't.” (Josh Billings)

    Stick to your beliefs, but know when it is time to throw in the towel and head in a different direction. Living by the sword and being willing to march into hell for those opinions can turn you into a martyr for a cause no one will remember in 6 months.

    It does no one any good if you are so ridged that you cannot flex with new changes or new ideas. It only causes you to be labeled as an obstructionist, and eventually, a person who must go.


    4.     “Judging a person does not define who they are. It defines who you are.” (Author unknown)

    Opinions can open doors to growth and development in other people. Be aware that your opinion is no more valuable than anyone else’s, and can even be harmful in the wrong venue or delivery approach.

    As a manager, your opinion can help open employees’ eyes, instill faith in the job they are doing, or it can devastate them with a misplaced sentence on what you believe.
