A small newsletter that reads big!The Learner
May 2008/ 011
 We are rather fortunate to have Mr Siddharth Bagrias our Director... and more so as he has a nurturingstyle of dealing with situations. This is one reason why BIFM is galloping along the profit graph.Let me quote from a book that I have recently beenreading 'The Economic Naturalist. Why economicsexplains almost everything' by Robert H Frank whichhas an interesting section on the economics of praise within an organization. Praising nurturing managers who are quick to praise and slow to criticize, the writer gives the following explanation: "Theexplanation involves a statistical phenomenon --regression to the mean. Employees do not perform to the same standard all the time. some weeks they perform above their average, other weeks below.Irrespective of the managerial feedback she receives,an employee who performs below her standard inone week is likely to improve -- have a more nearly normal performance -- the next. Conversely, anemployee who performs above her standard one week is likely to fall back a bit the next, whether her manager praises her or not.The upshot is that managers who are highly criticalof employees following a sub-par performance may misattribute the improved subsequentperformance (which would have occurred anyway) to their tough feedback. Conversely, managers whopraise their employees following superior performances may misinterpret the subsequentdeclines (which also would have occurred anyway) to their lenient management style.Experiments suggest that a nurturing managerialstyle is more likely to elicit a good performancefrom employees than a highly critical style.” Wishing you all a happy reading.
