A couple of years ago, we were interviewing individual employees as part of our Company Climate Inventory with a client.  During this interview, I asked the gentleman about his strengths and gifts, especially with regard to managing others.  He said, “Managing good people is easy.”

“What makes someone ‘good’?” I asked.

“Not lazy,” was his response.

Is that really all that it is?  Just someone doing their job, and therefore managing that person is effortless?

No, it takes more than that.  Listen in as I go a little deeper into defining good managers and good employees.
