Ignorance is not Bliss


Ignoranceis not Bliss

Drucker`sposition on ignorance is that its eradication is grueling for anyorganization. He surmises that learning is a lifelong process. Whentackling a new lesson one should approach it from a nescient point ofview (Luthans, 2011). The rationale for this is that what oneperceives to be factual can be antiquated by discovery. I concur withDucker because contemporary apprehension has continued to renderconventional facts obsolete. Therefore, it would be prudent toexploit every opportunity to learn and get rid of the ignorance.

ZoeCruz’s demise at Morgan Stanley was a result of the way shemishandled her colleagues (Luthans, 2011). Cruz had a tendency ofreprobating workers for failures that squarely fell on her. Asignificant number of the employees loathed her. As Drucker puts it,being execrated does not depict preeminence (Luthans, 2011). Also,circumventing responsibilities leading to harassing of workerssuperfluously is the quickest way to fall off from a leadershipposition.

Druckervindication that popularity does not depict leadership is precise.Being favored does not inexorably mean that a leader is dexterous.Responsibility results in desirable results. The prudent way ofjudging a shrewd leader is by assessing the outcomes of the outlinedduties. Workers may admire a leader who may show laxity. However, itis worth noting that being lethargic can lead to the failure of anorganization to achieve the conceived objectives.

Toimprove her effectiveness, Cruz should have adhered to severalaristocratic considerations. First, she should have avoided broachingpolitics in the workplace. The two do not augur well since they havedivergent objectives. Secondly, mistreating workers forge a strenuouswork environment. Cruz should have been friendly and approachable toemployees (Luthans, 2011). Finally, the failure to accept liabilityfor functions not executed undermines motivation. Taking the failureswould not have made Cruz a spineless leader.
