Commitment vs. Compliance

In a "traditional organization",  managers set goals, make decisions, manage the budget, set policies, control information, etc.  In these organizations, managers are the thinkers and planners and employees are merely the doers.  This sets up an attitude of compliance.  People don't feel appreciated or fully utilized.  Their hearts are not in their work.  They learn to get by, do the minimum required, and watch the clock.

In a high-performance organization, leaders recognize the value and potential of their human resources and want to tap the potential. They create a culture in which people participate in setting goals, making decisions, and solving problems. People go beyond compliance to commitment in their motivation  All employees feel and act like partners in the business and  are excited to contribute to its success

Until next time...
