We have covered the series of ‘Staffing’ as a managerial function in the past 1 month with articles such as Reinvent Your Workforce – Employee Engagement, The Cost of Hiring the Wrong Employee, The Success Mantra of 6 C and 5 Stages of Employee Transformation focusing upon key aspects such as employee engagement, growth essentials of an employee leading to organisational growth and development.

These articles will help us relate better with the last topic in the series which is the 4 Stages of Employee Evolution. Each stage shows how an employee’s attitude and approach is a determiner to the outcome of the results which impacts his growth in an organisation mentioned as under.

  1. Ordinary – In this stage, the employee is just another professional from the industry who lacks experience, guile and the skill required for that particular job role. He’s one who is learning the tricks of trade but isn’t motivated enough to take the bull by the hornse. he takes all tasks as an obligation rather than being committed towards achieving his goal at all costs. It’s not difficult for a company to replace him with another qualified resource for the task.

He lacks the intent, the commitment and is just dragging himself. In short he’s on a Mindless journey, least appreciated by any organisation, wasting his time and the organisation’s time, as well. Such professionals find it difficult to establish themselves in an organisation. It’s their attitude and approach towards work that brings them down and acts as a roadblock towards growth and excellence.

  1. Manager – A Manageris a person who is responsible for a part of a company, i.e. they ‘manage‘ the company. Managers may be in charge of a department and the people who work in it. In some cases, the manager is in charge of the whole business.

There are ordinary managers in every organisation as well as efficient managers. It’s a known fact that 20 % managers bring 80 % of the desired business or development or growth and the rest 80 % managers barely make up the numbers. It’s important for a manager to drive his team in the right direction to meet the desired goal. This level of an organisation’s hierarchy is very important as it’s the engine of the train without which the train will derail so it’s critical for every organisation to understand the challenges faced by them, which motivates and inspires them to keep on driving the business ahead.

A good manager is one who invests in self and drives all those under him towards achieving the desired goal. A credible manager is one who takes full ownership and accountability of the task. It’s this approach which separates him from the rest, and he’s no more an ordinary manager or professional but is a value creator in his thoughts, actions and execution.

  1. Leader – A leader is an influencer. He’s someone who leads by example. ‘All leaders are managers but not all managers are leaders’ is such a true quote for many reasons. A leader is someone who’s always invested in his work and thinks from a broader perspective in life.

He always keeps his team first before him and motivates them to take the next level plunge. An efficient leader is one who takes the bull by the horns. He never believes in the blame game and ensures his team invests all resources in the right direction. In certain organisations, the role of a manager and leader overlaps mainly as both are accountable for their own and their team’s performance.

At smmart Training Consultancy Services Pvt. Ltd, smmartizens [all employees] are made to believe that they are leaders of personal and professional growth in the present and will be contributors for a better future as well. A manager may be lost in daily management activities and may lose track of his goal, whereas a leader is a source of inspiration for the entire Team. He’s someone who Rocks The Boat In The Middle of The Sea. When the chips are down and the going gets tough, he’s the one who strives hard and tries his best each time to get his team out of the trap.

  1. Role Model An efficient manager or leader is a Role Model in the eyes of his team in many ways. An employee who has transformed from an ordinary professional to an efficient, valuable manager or leader is a Success Story in itself. Such a professional has gained credibility over a period of time and is a reliable, valuable resource for his excellence in work, communication, actions producing results at will,etc.

He’s an Impact Multiplier who can rise from the ashes and create transformational changes in the lives of those around him. He’s looked upon as an ideal Role Model who can influence businesses and is someone who challenges the Status Quo which makes him a professional par Excellence.
