kmbs CHANGE talks: Cornelius Granig about business management
I decided to hold personal meetings with employees from the very beginning and it became a common rule for me. Usually, I don’t have plenty of time, but I try to meet with at least six employees every week. We discuss existing problems and those ideas, which they’d like to share with me. Such meetings are held in alphabetical order; therefore, I meet absolutely different people: the first one may be a driver, while the second one may be an expert in some technological issues. And, of course, we don’t invite managers to such meetings, because there is always a risk that an employee will refrain from voicing some issues in the presence of a manager. It is extremely important not to distance yourself from people; otherwise you’ll just fall out of the internal situation. And if you don’t get any feedback, you won’t be able to understand properly where the company is standing in the moment.
