Demoralized Workforce Blues
It is truly amazing how fast a crisis can snowball. I feel a great deal of empathy for our friends in Automotive. Poor forecast accuracy and externally impacted political demand schedules; require this industry to employ only the very best in their field. Trouble is, nobody “wants” to lead an automotive production organization. You’ll work harder than you every have in a thankless environment where the light at the end of the seems more like a black hole. This is the industry that really separates good leaders from great leaders. On the positive side, if you are learning to lead – there is no better environment. If you are a leader in the Automotive industry, dealing with a demoralized workforce keep these four key points in mind.
