Managers have to be Sporks as they are called to do more with less and constantly seek out new ways of achieving results. Spork management requires you to take two seemingly different things, find their commonality and blend them together. A spoon is used to hold liquids, a fork to spear solids and yet they are both eating utensils so combining them makes sense. A fork and chainsaw (Chork? Fainsaw?) probably wouldn’t work as well.
Thus, managerial leadership in the work-life realm shouldn’t view work and life as separate (spoon and fork) but as one (Spork). My program, The Spork Principle: 3 Techniques for Becoming a High Impact Work-Life Manager teaches you how to create a high performance culture whose foundation is in work-life flexibility. Some of the considerations you should consider as a manager are building your knowledge base in:
- The needs of your employees (first and foremost)
- Company policies
- State and Federal Law
- Active listening techniques
- Workplace trends
- Medical conditions
- Organizational psychology
- Community trends and recent events (if applicable and it usually is).
