A majority of people will only improve when pushed and sometimes threatened by authority. Surprisingly, she usually gets it. If you commit yourself to impossible standards, you will always be surprised by what you can achieve. So if you are a boss, crack the whip. If you are an employee, be grateful for a boss that pushes you beyond your limits. Although I did say that we do not have to be a nice boss all the time, I am not suggesting that you become mean and condescending to your subordinates.
Leadership traits are portrayed quite negatively in the movie, as reflected by the entry of Miranda to the office. Constant team meetings, where everyone tries to portray himself or herself as best to please the boss is not a positive sign of teamwork. Such an environment creates negativity and affects productivity. A good manager should be approachable, appreciative and newcomers should not feel rejected.
Employers should be able to create rapport with all subordinates. Instead, work to earn respect by being a strong yet approachable mentor and leader. At the end of the day, kindness earns more respect than fear ever will. A tough manager who is able to empower his or her employees is a hallmark of a true leader.

Here are some lessons for freshies who have just entered the working world and are still getting themselves attuned to the intricacies of corporate culture: 1.
Build rapport with supervisors So you have a difficult boss and both of you are unable to see eye-to-eye. Show tenacity at work Showing commitment to your organisation and your boss will help you get ahead in your career. Know where to draw the line Therein lies the question, where do we draw the line? The first part of the word is the prefix dia , which means through and often carries the idea of penetration. Because dia is used at the first of this word, it tells us that the devil wants to make some kind of penetration. You become nit-picky, negative, and fault-finding. Even if you do see something good in him, all the bad you see outweighs the good.
He is trying to disrupt what has been a pleasant and gratifying relationship in your life. Instead of meditating on all the bad points of that person, look in the mirror yourself!

Remembering these things has a way of making you look at an offensive situation a little more mercifully. Ask the Holy Spirit to take the criticism out of your heart and to cause the love of God in you to flow toward that other person or group of people. Pray for an opportunity to strengthen that relationship so all the entry places to your life and to that relationship remain sealed.
Stop the devil from worming his way into the middle of your relationships with people you need and love! Lord, I ask You to help me keep the doors to my heart and soul closed to the devil!
Let the Devil Sleep
I know he would like to slip into my relationships and ruin them, so I am asking You to help me stay free of offense, free of unforgiveness, and free of bitterness. I confess that I walk in forgiveness! Offense, bitterness, strife, and unforgiveness have no place in my life. The Spirit of God dwells in me, and He always convicts me of wrong attitudes that the devil could potentially use to bind me.
I love Jesus, and I want to please Him; therefore, I refuse to allow these destructive attitudes to remain in me. I am full of mercy, longsuffering, and slow to anger. What did you learn from that experience? Did you see how the devil operates to toss you into a tizzy, steal your peace, and harm your relationships?
If you were counseling someone else who was struggling with a similar problem, how would you counsel that person to keep his heart free of bitterness, anger, or strife? We often throw open the door to the devil when we: Refuse to let go of old hurts and wounds. Ephesians ,7, Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
We are to love every brother and not create imaginary divisions. None can say Jesus is Lord except by the Spirit. In loving them, you also show love to the Lord. They those outside will know you are my disciples by your love agape for one another. Am a pastor in Kampala Uganda. My ministry is only a month old.

Great article, Carey. I appreciate the balanced perspective. Another tactic we see a lot of is comfortableness. When the enemy can get the church to feel like everything is good. We are living the American dream, nice house, nice neighborhood, nice family life, nice cars, nice life… go to church on Sunday, or every other or so… just keep the status quo.

Maybe read a verse or two of scripture a day, and pray before dinner, on holidays, anyway. Closely related is: family first. Thank you for this! The simple reminder that there is an enemy using these tactics against us is encouraging.
For me, those two strategies seem to be two sides of the same coin. Division: Do you see a division in church between clergy and laity that ought not be there?

Thanks for this. At our church, everyone works together to move the mission forward. In terms of the leadership podcast…appreciate the comments. Laity gives finances and passive listening attention.

Clergy consumes finances and empty auditory space. In my company, management and employees are working towards a common goal. Management actually hinders progress to the degree they keep distracting with talking about the work rather than facilitating the work happening. In the church it seems like there is a top-heavy scenario where leaders receive compensation, attention and honor at the expense of those they are leading. For me, it seems like there is a correlation with pastors and managers.
Pastors ought to be shepherding the work, meaning facilitating the Body work, going unnoticed because each member is edifying each other. That does not seem the case in the church today where the pastor is front and center. Notify me of follow-up comments by email.

The greatest mistake you can make with evil is to overestimate or underestimate its influence. Self-pity chisels in stone what discouragement whispers.
