A healthy economy is a result of balancing 'economic prosperity' and 'economic justice'.

This idea comes from communicating with a Chinese student today. She wants to share her concerns about current Chinese economy; business; management problems, and I catch a sense that the young talented individual has a (disoriented) dilemma - increasing economic prosperity as well as economic justice. I suggest her to think about "balancing like Yin & Yang". She immediately understands that 'we need both consequently though one seems prevailing another for a while'.

Yes, management, in common' is balancing and learning from 'Paradox or Dilemma'. ^^

Managers and Executive, 

You may have difficulties in motivating your people to engage in their work. And you may think "Should I give more bonus or reward to motivate my people?". OK... but can you take a moment and think what non-financial rewards can make people engage in their work? 

Daniel Pink proposes three factors that lead to better performance and personal satisfaction. 

1. Autonomy

2. Mastery 

3. Purpose

Simply people want to be "Self-directed" in work. 

People want utilize their skills. 

People want to get connected with you and they want to be inspired by your vision.  

Unnecessary managing and controlling over your people (micro-management) kills people's motivation regardless you provide fantastic financial rewards. 

Can you simply let your people know your motivating 'purpose'? And can you empower your people design their work and utilize their skills to accomplish mutual purpose? 

You'd better invest your most precious resource (the Time and Power) with you people before giving our your tangible resources (Money) for nothing.  

Human Spirit, by nature, want to be free from unnecessary oppression. 

Let your people's spirit arise and shine. Then they will do work by themselves for you. 

From Dr. Choi, 

This lively RSA Animate, adapted from Dan Pink's talk at the RSA, illustrates the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace.

The most fatal sin (at the workplace) is "Having a jealousy on virtuous and competent people".  

However, the best healing (at the workplace) is "Loving virtuous and competent people". 

- Lee, Jema : a Korean healer and philosopher. 

妬賢嫉能 天下之大病
好賢樂善 天下之大藥

투현질능 천하지대병; 
호현낙선 천하지대약. 

"어진 자를 질투하고 능력있는 자를 질시하는 인간의 마음이야말로 천하의 대병大病이요,
현명한 자를 대접하고 선한 자를 존중하는 인간의 마음이야말로 천하의 대약大藥이다."
