Read an interesting article highlighting the importance of being a manager focusing on being efficient instead of just effective! That is to really examen how you as the executive manager is perceived by your employees and the effect this has on the business.
Simon Elvnäs KTH researched leadership based on what managers believe they do or implement and what the employees perceive that they actually do or implement!
Interestingly - 40% of the managers themselves perceived that they spent much of their time giving feedback to the employees - while the research shows that in reality they were no more than 0-2% of the time spent on it.
Then I have spoken on this subject I have exclaimed: "It's not what you say but what you do that counts". Now I can add: "As a manager how do you take in count on how your employees perceive what you do?"'
Is it efficient or effective?
