Don’t judge or per­ceive rather con­stantly eval­u­ate

The first or­gan­i­sa­tional chal­lenge a man­ager faces is to de­velop and main­tain a suc­cess­ful work­place team. It’s not easy to man­age hu­man be­ings, be it in the fam­ily, a re­la­tion­ship or in an or­gan­i­sa­tion. There are many fac­tors that de­ter­mine a per­son’s na­ture, pro­duc­tiv­ity, emo­tional ten­den­cies and com­mu­ni­ca­tion. All those fac­tors that struc­ture hu­man na­ture and be­hav­iour on a day-to-day or hour-by­hour ba­sis can be cat­e­gorised un­der two pri­mary in­flu­encers–Time and Space. By ‘time’ it means fac­tors that change in the course of a per­son’s life­time such as age, hor­mones, men­stru­a­tion, health, hours spent awake af­ter last meal, hours de­voted for rest and sleep. If you see closely, the ‘time fac­tor’ di­rectly in­flu­ences a per­son’s be­hav­iour, mood and emo­tions on an hourly ba­sis. By ‘Space’ it means all fac­tors that phys­i­cally in­flu­ence the per­son, like the con­di­tion of the work place such as the size of the cu­bi­cle, chair, desk, com­puter and com­mu­ta­tion dis­tance from work­place. The hu­man ten­dency is to build per­cep­tions about peo­ple based on one or two ac­tions, be­hav­iour and re­ac­tions. No doubt! In to­day’s com­pet­i­tive cor­po­rate en­vi­ron­ment where dead­lines mean ev­ery­thing, no man­ager has the time and psy­cho­log­i­cal en­ergy to sit and think about their team mem­bers. But eval­u­ate the time and ef­forts that you will save and goals you could achieve if you help your team mem­ber over­come his/her time and space con­straints. If overcoming the time and space chal­lenges is not pos­si­ble, a man­ager should com­mu­ni­cate that they do un­der­stand and re­spect their team mem­ber’s prob­lem.
