Managing People – What You Should Know – The Good Manager – Ralph Peterson

A New Direction

Everyone wants to be a manager.  They have this erroneous belief that when you become a manager that you have extra benefits and your work is less.  DON’T YOU BELIEVE IT!  There is a reason why there are so many managing jobs out there.  One is because in a very short time people realize that the work and responsibility is more.  Two, they realize they are over their head and it’s hard.  But the biggest reason is because when people get a management position they really do not have the skills and know-how when it comes to managing people.  Most people when they get into management think they will have the open door, golden rule policies.  You know the “do unto others”, “I don’t expect you to do anything I wouldn’t do”, “pick and choose your battles” etc.  But the reality is those policies never work and managers fail despite their good intentions.  Thankfully in this episode of A New Direction Management Trainer, Guru, and friend of the show Ralph Peterson sets us straight. Ralph’s latest book entitled, “The Good Manager: Being Great is Overrated” is on eye opening look at what it takes to be a “Good Manager”.  Why “good” and not “great” well as he points out using his analogy of the “Rocky” movie series, when we get great we get complacent and we stop doing the things that we did to be great.  The truth is you just need to be really good when it comes to managing which means that you have to be consistent and do the hard work that got you to a managing position and continue to do it.  “The Good Manager” has a wealth of awesome advice when it comes to managing people.  I promise you this many of the things Ralph is going to talk about in the book will shock you, surprise you, but when you start to put it all in perspective, you realize one thing…to be “The Good Manager” it may be simple, but it  is not that easy.  Oh and one other thing…Never be evil!  You are going to love Ralph Peterson!

Improve Your Management Approach with Ralph Peterson

The Business of Cleaning

Leading and managing successfully can be difficult to nail down, especially when in-person seminars are few and far between right now. We sat down with someone who’s expertise in management in the cleaning industry to help you refine your own management just a little bit more. Ralph Peterson is a housekeeping management trainer, specializing in the healthcare and long-term care spaces. He has hired, promoted, and trained managers, those first-timers to the most experienced, for over 20 years. We sat with Ralph to discuss the industry, especially recently, and process management on the job. Ralph first joined the industry at 16 by cleaning ski condominiums and didn’t expect to return to it after college, but when he was offered a great management position, later on, he returned for the long haul.
