The Business of Trust
Remember that time at work when you felt you couldn't take even one more day of directions from those with no experience, the lack of regard for your input, or the complete absence of appreciation for your efforts! The aching pit in your stomach that gets harder to ignore, yet you suffer through it, at least until it all spins out of control and you quit, but that's after its negative impact has permeated every aspect of your life. Other than factors such as salary and benefits, one's supervisor has the greatest impact on the contentment we feel in our jobs as well as our productivity. One manager might influence the lives of tens, if not hundreds of individuals throughout their career. Unfortunately, business education today spends far too much time attempting to train future C.E.O.s and too little grooming great managers. Managers that learn to trust their employees and bring the best out in them are not only a benefit to the employee, but they can actually bring greater success to the organizations they work for.

About Ray Filasky
Ray Filasky recently retired from a career that encompassed self-employment, direct sales experience and over 25 years of various levels of managerial positions. Holding both a Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Business Administration, his educational background and work experience have made him a staunch proponent of participative management styles and the importance of cultivating the creativity and enthusiasm of fellow co-workers. He has managed groups from three to three hundred and revenues from two million to two hundred million. Instilled early on with a strong work ethic, he believes that we are each accountable for our own hard work as well as to always give our best and that the majority of individuals want to do just that, if given the chance. It is the responsibility of any organization (at least if they wish to be successful and relevant) to cultivate an atmosphere that champions the creativity and autonomy of the individual while, at the same time, providing a clear vison of the overall objectives of the association.
