ChangeThis :: Managing With Aloha

ChangeThis :: Managing With Aloha

This should be good. Haven't read it yet, but I get the feeling I'm going to agree with it. Will let you know. I like how Rosa Say describes her company's mission: "bringing nobility to the art of management". Cool.

Update: 10 July 2005

Yes! I've read Rosa's manifesto on "Managing with Aloha" and I heartily agree with it. It's a people-first approach to management, one that probably goes against the bottom-line ideology of corporates today, but makes so much sense when you just apply a bit of common sense.

If businesses started looking at people as the biggest investment made rather than the biggest cost incurred, they'd start to experience balanced growth. This is the kind of approach Say is advocating, using aloha - far more than just a Hawaiian greeting - to provide a positive, productive atmosphere at work, wherever that is.

So I'll be following with interest what else Rosa has to Say... (sorry, unavoidable pun there) at her blog:

Aloha Simon,
Mahalo nui - thank you for your sharing of my Managing with Aloha manifesto!

And I do hope you like what you will read: I'll be looking forward to hearing your thoughts, for Kakou, we are better when our thoughts are brought together. Be they diverse or similar, we can always find some harmony in our learning - and great management is worth the effort.

I sincerely appreciate the aloha you have already shared with me in writing this post. Aloha e, Ho'ohana, Rosa
