Does pay count?

I recently read:

Here are a few of my thoughts:

Great article I think points 3 and 4 are very strong. Another point that I think you missed was if an employee gives you a figure they are looking for the 2 things you shouldn't do is;

a) pump up a "package" to make it sound like you are meeting that figure. Sure the market value of what you saying is true - but employees know what the actual cost to you is - and will feel short-changed.

b) Not challenging yourself to exceed that package. Leadership is top down. If you want your staff to exceed expectations - you try and exceed their expectations first. The first experience of this is an offer letter. You are trying to prove to them that you a great company to work for - what greater proof then telling them "you can stop looking - we are the best".

Closing time......

Sorry guys. I have quite a few things going on. So as you may have noticed I didn't have time to post more on here.
So its best that I close it off for now. It has been a pleasure.

But don't think for a minute that I don't care about the issues in this blog. I do.

Till another day

Product Management/Product Marketing - The Nissan GTR35

I am going to post this as a part of "Supercar Sunday" for Farrst Developments - but there is so much good business material in this short movie I couldn't help but also put it here to for you all to see. Seems that Carlos Ghosn is a very smart man, and a very savvy business leader.

I have no doubt in my mind that he was very instrumental in getting the R35 out of drawing boards and into real life. I can understand why the Japanese people look up to him, and why Renault grabbed him when they did.
