LEADERSHIP ONBOARD DOESN'T MEAN DICTATORSHIP
Often we come across certain people who have a myth being in their mind that running a ship is one man show. But such a bubble of myth must burst into the rain of awareness that engine just doesn't run just by itself, but it takes efforts of lot of auxiliary machinery to make It work.Similarly, an organization, a company and even a ship is run by each of its members. I feel pity on some souls who do not upgrade their thought process.
I am proud to be a part of a company who works on family values with its employees and offers equal opportunity to all. Also the core importance of efficient team work is focused upon. This leads to higher confidence in the employee and they can communicate in a better way.
This is how most of the worldclass corporates function. They have a culture of open door policiy where one is easily accessible to all in the organization. Yes the proper heirarchy must be respected and should be followed, but it must be kept in mind that each spoke of the wheel is important for the wheel itself.
This should be taught to all sailors, despite of their ranks that all ranks are important for efficient running of the ship. The word team work must be emphasized upon on a large scale and the thought of one man show must be limited to self m better to get rid of it.
A person who is at a lower rank today, will be on the top tomorrow and those at the top will be either upgraded or removed from the system. This is life. This is the nature of the system. Thus, we shall remain meek and humble at all times with everyone.
