Where there is shouting, there is no true knowledge!

The quote ‘Where there is shouting, there is no true knowledge’ by the great Leonardo Da Vinci, has got us thinking this Monday at Zest 2 Recruitment HQ…As a Director, Manager or even a Team Leader… does shouting get the best results from your team?Many employees can probably remember a time they had the pleasure (or not!) of working with a senior member of staff who likes to get their point heard by raising their voice, particularly within a sales environment!However, does this work? Or does it make individuals switch off to you?Perhaps instead of shouting and becoming agitated with poor performances, being able to offer some ideas of how to improve results as well as some constructive criticism could be a more effective way of motivating staff and lifting spirits… which would ultimately lead people to their own successes.Shouting above everyone else does not necessarily encourage people to work harder or mean that your opinion has the most value… if what you have to say is knowledgeable, constructive, supportive and encouraging then this can be done in a whisper!We would be keen to find out your thoughts… (and please do feel free to share your stories of monstrous managers, past and present!)#Zest2Recruitment #Zest2Rec #Recruitment #Sales #Shouting #MondayMotivation

Don’t adapt to the energy in the room.

Peace…

It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work.
