Articulate The Connection Between Individual Contribution And Company Goals

I spoke to a very experienced people manager today about his management approach. He said that one of the most important things a manager needs to do is to articulate the connection between individual contribution and the goals of an organization.

He said that this articulation and the development of an employee, to help them contribute, should be the top priorities of a manager. He went on to say that only managers who achieved results using this approach, and demonstrated other company values, were promoted in his company. Managers who micromanaged to achieve results without articulating the connection between goals and contribution were not promoted.

Would you want to work for a manager who does not explain to you how your contribution helps your company achieve its goals?
