Passage

The supervisor would have to change his attitude towards people first. The staff under him must be perceived as human beings with feelings and needs. They are not automations within a complex work machinery. One of the greatest needs of today’s worker is to have a feeling that he is in control of his work place and not vice-versa. The best way is to satisfy this need as far as possible. He must feel firstly, that his work is meaningful. To do this the supervisor must delegate responsibility and limited authority for the man to execute his job well. The subordinate must be properly trained to assume responsibility and authority. Once he is ready to assume these he can be made accountable for his job. Very often supervisors assume all responsibility and accountability for fear of losing control of the workplace. This makes workers under him pawns in a vast chessboard. Delegating accountability gives the worker a purpose in life and the need to do a job well. Most important is to sit with each worker and chalk out common objectives and agreed norms to achieve them. This gives workers a security as to what is expected to them. When he has met his objectives he certainly has a feeling of achievement. This feeling of achievement is the greatest motivator.

Passage

The Laburnum Top is silent, quite still

in the afternoon yellow September sunlight,

A few leaves yellowing, all its seeds fallen

Till the goldfinch comes, with a twitching chirrup

A suddeness, a startlement, at a branch end

Then, sleek as a lizard and alert and abrupt,

She enters the thickness, and a machine starts up

Of Chitterings, and of tremor of wings, and trillings

The whole tree trembles and thrills

It is the engine of her family.

She stokes it full, then flirts out to a branch end

Showing her barred face identity mask

Then with cerie delicate whistle chirrup whisperings

She launches away, towards the infinite

And the laburnum subsides to empty

– Ted Hughes
